REPORT OF BOARD OF EDUCATION 

Your Board has had before it representatives and reports from the following 
institutions: Duke University, Greensboro, Davenport, Weaver and Rutherford 
Colleges. These reports were given careful consideration by your Board. 

It is gratifying to note that our major colleges, Duke and Greensboro, are 
steadily moving forward in carrying out their programs of expansion and in- 
tensive development. 

Our Junior colleges, Davenport, Weaver and Rutherford, are making signal 
progress in spite of their limited resources and lack of adequate equipment. But 
they seem all the more determined to succeed in spite of their handicaps. Special 
mention is due Rutherford College for success in getting back on foot, after 
having sustained so great loss by disastrous fires early in the year. 

The general outlook for all our educational institutions is most promising. 
We feel that the educational interests of our Church are in the safe keeping of 
capable and consecrated guardians of our educational and spiritual ideals. 

Your attention is called to the importance of the payment of all Christian 
Education pledges. The report of our Treasurer shows that more than thirty- 
six thousand dollars have been paid during the year. Let this matter be stressec 1 
at all times, especially on Christian Education Day, in the local Church. 

We heartily endorse the plan of the General Board for an Educational Survey 
in our Conference. 

RESOLUTIONS 

That in order that our Junior colleges may become self-supporting, charges 
for board, room rent, and tuition should be gradually increased until the income 
from these sources shall be sufficient to meet current expenses. 

That the request of Greensboro, Davenport and Rutherford Colleges to con- 
tinue their campaign for an increased endowment be granted. 

That the Conference Secretary of Christian Education, in co-operation with 
the Secretary of the General Board, together with representatives of schools 
involved, work out a plan for final disposition of unpaid Christian Education 
pledges in a manner satisfactory to all parties concerned. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

That C. M. Pickens be elected a member of Board of Managers of North 
Carolina Pastors' School to succeed himself. 

That Dr. G. T. Rowe be selected as the representative of this Conference 
Board of Education to attend the Methodist Education Association which will 
meet in February, 1929. 

That the following persons be elected and confirmed as Trustees for the 
various church schools as follows: 

Greensboro College: Dred Peacock to succeed himself. 

Weaver College: H. A. Dunham, Ashley Chappell and W. B. Barnard. 

Rutherford College: H. H. Jordan, C. A. Spencer, W. R. Ware, D. W. 
Alexander and G. F. Ivey to succeed themselves. H. R. Dwire to succeed J. Frank 
Morris, deceased.

BOARD OF MISSIONS— REPORT NO. 1 

After careful consideration of the Missionary information and interests of 
our Conference, we rejoice at the manifest spirit of Christian service as evi- 
denced by the contribution of our members to carry forward the work of the 
Great Commission. Reports from the one hundred twenty charges in our Con- 
ference receiving Missionary aid is of such character as to give encouragement 
to every contributor. 

We rejoice to hear the good report of Woman's work of our Conference. 
This work has developed with great rapidity. They now have 45 7 organizations 
with 15,265 members. During the past year our women made the greatest 
financial increase in Southern Methodism, bringing them up from fifth to third 
place among the Conferences. 

This year has been designated Jubilee Year in honor of the fiftieth anniversary 
of the organized work among our women, and a special effort is being made to 
enlist the unlisted women throughout the bounds of our Conference and we 
earnestly ask the help of the pastors in this most important work. Furthermore, 
we recommend that the entire membership of our Churches be called to the 
cultivation of an enlarged spirit and a confirmed habit of prayer. 

We feel that an appreciative understanding of the missionary needs of hu- 
manity and a living faith in the power of the Gospel to meet these needs clan 
be greatly increased by a hearty participation in the Enlarged Plan of Missionary 
Education which is being promoted by the General Board. We earnestly recom- 
mend that in each charge effort be made to co-operate with the General Board 
and with the Conference Board in giving to our people an understanding of 
the plans, the policies, and the administrative difficulties of this work, as well as 
of the urgent needs of the whole missionary enterprise. We especially call at- 
tention to the value of the Missionary Voice, which is now conceded to be one 
of the outstanding Missionary periodicals of x\merica. This magazine should 
be in every Methodist home. 

We heartily approve the plans of the General Board to hold an International 
Missionary Conference at Memphis, Tennessee, in January, and pledge our sup- 
port to it. C. H. Ireland has been selected Conference Director for the Mission- 
ary Conference at Memphis. We urge hearty co-operation with him in this 
important position of leadership. 

A study of the financial report of the Missionary interests of our Conference, 
and, in fact, of all the benevolent work of our Church, reveals the fact that 
the every-member canvass has proved to be the best plan for raising these 
obligations. We take comfort and pride that our Conference has maintained 
its place in the forefront in the every-member canvass and in contributions. 
We urge that the every-member canvass be used in all our charges. 



Western North Carolina Conference 47 

We note with unusual interest that the new Southern Biblical Institute has 
been located at Lake Junaluska, within the bounds of our own Conference, 
thus adding to that church-wide center of Methodism. 

(Signed) E. K. McLARTY, Chairman, 
J. D. RANKIN, Secretary. 

BOARD OF MISSIONS— REPORT NO. 2 

The Conference Board of Missions is in hearty accord with the General Board 
in promoting the International Missionary Conference, similar in character to 
the Missionary Conference in New Orleans in 1901 and to the Pre-Centenary 
Conference. C. H. Ireland is selected as Director for this Conference and we 
request that full and enthusiastic co-operation be accorded him. 

The following groups, by virtue of their respective positions, are members 
of the International Missionary Conference : The Presiding Elders, the members 
of the Conference Board of Missions, the Conference officers of the Woman's 
Missionary Society, the Conference Lay Leaders, and in addition to these, 150 
appointive delegates. 

Rev. R. M. Courtney has been selected Conference Missionary Secretary to 
succeed himself in the work which he has carried on from year to year with 
commendable efficiency. 

In view of the increasing industrialization of our Conference territory and 
the new problems which necessarily arise thereby, your Board wishes to go on 
record as having a sympathetic interest in every phase of the social, economic 
and moral problems connected with this work. And in order that we may be 
able to act with knowledge and efficiency in this field, the following have been 
selected as a committee to study the industrial situation and make report with a 
view to arriving at a sane, helpful and Christian plan of work: R. M. Courtney, 
J. F. Shinn, W. A. Newell. 

The Missionary Cultivation work in our Conference appears to be meeting 
a need for increasing the Missionary information of our membership that has 
not been so well met in any other way. We earnestly request that this work be 
stressed in larger measure than ever before. 

We desire to recall attention to the policy of the Board with reference to 
the payment of Missionary appropriations, which is that no payments are made 
after the payment for the first quarter until an every-member canvass has been 
carefully carried out and reported. 

The following appropriations to the various charges are recommended:

REPORT OF BOARD OF FINANCE 

No cause more worthy than Superannuate Endowment has ever challenged 
the noblest efforts of our Church. It is an appealing call of distress for aid 
in behalf of the Church's veteran preachers and the widows* and orphans of 
preachers. 

This work has been vigorously carried on during the year with results that 
are encouraging. The clean-up campaign has' yet two years to run. 

Therefore we ask that this Annual Conference recommit itself to this work. 
Let us pay every penny we have promised. 



Western North Carolina Conference 5 1 

We request that every Presiding Elder of our Conference provide in his 
District Conference program an opportunity for our Conference Director of 
Superannuate Endowment, or his representative, to a'ddress the District Confer- 
ence on the subject of the Clean-up Campaign for Superannuate Endowment. 

To this end we request every pastor to join heartily in the plan projected 
by our General Board of Finance. 

We, as members of our Conference Board of Finance, commit ourselves to 
this work and beseech all the members of our Conference to join us in a united 
and determined effort to do our part well. 

Your Board also urges that all the assessments in our Conference for the 
superannuate fund be collected. We are forced this year to distribute less to 
each claimant than last year because you have given us a smaller fund and at 
the same time a larger need.

58 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD 

Among the Disciplinary duties with which your Sunday School Board is 
charged the following are noted: 

"1. To have general oversight of the Sunday School work of the Confer- 
ence, including allied week-day religious instruction. 

"2. To promote the organization and development of new Sunday Schools 
and to assist needy schools in securing proper literature and supplies. 

"3. To promote evangelism through instruction, better organization and 
equipment, instruction and training in the principles and practice of Christian 
stewardship ; and more effective training in worship and in missionary, social 
service, and other forms of religious activity. 

"4. To promote the training of Sunday School teachers and officers and other 
Christian workers. 

"5. To promote the observance of Sunday School Day, Promotion Day, 
and Decision Day. 

"6. To promote the use of our own literature and such additional literature 
as may be approved as it deems necessary for the advancement of its work. 

"7. To publish and distribute such promotion literature as it deems necessary 
for the advancement of its work. 

"8. To co-operate with the General Sunday School Board in carrying out 
its plans and policies, including the promotion of standards, of Conference, 
district, sub-district, city, and circuit Sunday School organizations, of training 
schools, of Wesley Class Federations, and of Conference-wide Sunday School 
Conferences." 

Your Board is pleased to report that proper emphasis has been given each 
of the foregoing lines of endeavor. Our employed workers have served our 
pastors in their efforts to cultivate an evangelistical attitude. We rejoice in the 
success attending these efforts. Records show that a greater number of our 
Sunday School pupils are joining the Church than in any Conference in Southern 
Methodism. 

Increasing numbers of our Sunday School officers and teachers are attending 
training schools in order to learn how to better lead their pupils. Records show 
that during the past year over 5,000 certificates of credit have been earned. We 
are glad to note that this phase of our work shows continued and steady growth. 

Much emphasis has been given our Sunday Schools to secure our own literature 
and to secure that of our own which is best adapted to given age groups. Gratify- 
ing results have obtained. 

Continued and increased effort has been given to the placing and checking of 
Programs of Work. Three hundred and twenty-eight of our Sunday Schools 
are now using these Programs as guides for their endeavor and are each year 
being scored on progress made. Advancement in this important phase of our 
work has been very evident. 

Our extension department has been very active during the past year. Much 
work has been done in hitherto neglected areas. Rural and industrial sections are 
now being offered as good religious educational promotional services as are other 
sections served by your Board. 

For a number of years our elementary department has been very outstanding 
in the work done in the interest of the religious needs of our children. It is 
quite a satisfaction to report that this work continues to grow in usefulness. 
Special emphasis has been given during the year to Childhood and Youth Week 
observances, in which our Conference assumes a place of leadership, and to the 
promotion of daily vacation church schools. 

Less than two years ago your Board established a Wesley Bible Class De- 
partment. The wisdom of this action grows more and more manifest. Records 



Western North Carolina Conference 59 

show that we now have more identified and up-to-date co-operative Wesley 
Classes than listed in any other Conference. 

A greater number of our Sunday Schools are observing Sunday School Day, 
thus better presenting the good work they do to their own communities, and 
also greatly assisting your Board in financing its constantly enlarging work. 

Missionary emphasis through fourth Sunday cultivation programs grows in 
scope and content. Offerings from this source show some increase. We urge our 
pastors and 'Sunday School leaders to give more thought to this important and 
fruitful w,ork. 

We have had in the field during the past year four whole-time workers, each 
of whom has given faithful and efficient service, these being O. V. Woosley, 
Conference Superintendent of Sunday School Work; Paul F. Evans, Extension 
Secretary; Miss Corinne Little, Elementary Superintendent; and L. F. Tuttle, 
Superintendent of Wesley Bible Class Work. These tried and true workers have 
been re-elected for the ensuing year. 

We wish to recommend that O. V. Woosley be elected as a member of the 
Board of Managers of the North Carolina Pastors' School. 

(Signed) D. E. HENDERSON, Chairman, 
GEO. L. HACKNEY, Secretary. 

REPORT OF EPWORTH LEAGUE BOARD 

The General Secretary of Epworth Leagues in his report to the annual Con- 
ference declares: "Many thoughtful pastors find in the Epworth League the 
best, if not the only, agency for preserving those aspects of Christian experience 
which are distinctive in Methodism." This is borne out by the fact that there 
has been a gain of nearly 500 new chapters this year with a membership gain 
of 4,700. We now have a total membership of about 279,000. While the gain 
does not seem specially gratifying, yet it is significant that the Epworth League 
has grown faster, proportionately, than the Church herself. Our gifts for 
missions and other benevolences aggregated about $447,000 per annum. 

Within the borders of our Conference there are seven active district unions, 
thirty-four new Senior Chapters and five new Hi-Leagues have been organized. 
Twelve institutes have been held during the year. These have issued 45 7 units 
of credit on the Christian Culture Diploma. In addition, the Conference As- 
sembly at Junaluska issued 43 6 credits. 

The Epworth Era is a publication unique in its field and has at present a 
circulation of 42,500 copies monthly. We urge our entire Conference to join 
the Board of Lay Activities in undertaking to rally Methodism in a Christian 
Stewardship Campaign during the incoming year. Let us not forget to observe 
the Christian Stewardship Covenant. 

We would call your attention to the great "Conference on Religion and 
Education" which is being planned for Junaluska in July of next year. This 
meeting will be held under the auspices of the Epworth League Board, the Sun- 
day School Board and the Board of Education, and is intended to attract not 
less than four thousand delegates from all over Southern Methodism. 

Other features of the year's work will be Corporate Communion, observed 
by all the League Chapters, North and South, on December 2nd. The Young 
People's Revival to be held in November. Participation in the special period 
of Missionary Cultivation in January and February. A determined and syste- 
matic effort to raise the Epworth League Missionary Special in fall. Extension 
of the Book-a-Month Club throughout the League and enlargement of the 
Recreation Leaders Association ; increase in the circulation of the Epworth Era 
and Juniors. 

Your Board would again emphasize as strongly a« possible the importance 
of a more systematic effort to raise the finances for our Epworth League work. 



60 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

In many instances this is not receiving the careful consideration which it deserves. 

We heartily approve the work of Rev. G. G. Adams as Field Secretary and 
recommend that he be reappointed to this position. 

We rejoice at the close co-operation between the Epworth League Board and 
the Conference Assembly. 

With many encouragements on every hand, we would earnestly suggest that 
all our pastors and Church leaders give their attention to directing the feet of 
our young people in the way of righteousness and Christian Service. 

Your Board respectfully urges every pastor to see that the Epworth League 
Anniversary Day, fourth Sunday in March, or as near thereto as practicable, be 
observed in all our congregations, and that an offering be taken on that day 
and forwarded to Mr. Joe D. Thompson, Treasurer, Mooresville, N. C. 

Your Board feels keenly the fact that the Committee entirely lost sight of 
the Epworth League Board in making out the program for the present session 
of the Conference, and we hereby express the hope that such omission will not 
occur in the future.

REPORT OF BOARD OF CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 

Books and periodicals of merit are being sent out from our Publishing House 
to inform the minds, move the hearts, and enrich the experiences of our people. 
lit is very fortunate that it is so, for there was never a time when such an 
avalanche of silly and vicious reading matter threatened to overrun us. The 
problem we face is to get our people to read our books and papers. Loyalty 
to our history, doctrines and program cannot be secured except from an informed 
constituency. The steadily increasing volume of business done by our Publishing 
House is evidence that a taste for good reading matter is increasing among us. 

Your Board requests that the Conference this year give special attention to 
the claims of the North Carolina Christian Advocate, issued from our own 
publishing plant in Greensboro, N. C. This, our Conference organ, is owned 
and controlled by the two Conferences of North Carolina and merits the united 
and enthusiastic support of all Methodists of the State. 

An immediate and urgent need at the present time is an enlarged circulation 
of the Advocate. We, therefore, recommend that the Conference take steps 
without delay, to bring the circulation to at least 16,000. This will require 
2,500 new subscribers, which is an average of only one new subscriber to every 
100 members of the Church — a goal that, with a united effort of pastors and 
Churches, is within easy reach. 

The following plan commends itself to us: Let Advocate Day be observed 
in every Church and, on the day set apart for the work, let a special effort be 
made to secure the desired number of new subscribers, which is a minimum of 
one for each 100 members of the Church. For example, if there be 100 members, 
one new subscriber. If 300 members, three new names; if 1,000 members, ten 
new subscribers. This number is so small that an effort put forth to that end 
will surely bring the desired results. 

In order that there be no undue delay, we suggest that Advocate Day be 
observed between now and December 15th, but if anything should prevent the 
observance thereof before December 15th, let it follow as soon thereafter as 
possible. 

We cordially and earnestly recommend the "Selective Book Service" as 
constituted by choice of the ministers of our Church at large and would urge 
all and especially our younger brethren to read these selected volumes. 

Your Board brings to the attention of the Conference that we have a printing 
plant in Greensboro worth $176,000 and equipped to do all sorts of printing, 



Western North Carolina Conference 61 

books, college catalogs, letterheads and anything that conies from a printshop. 
And the rates are as low as any other shop that does first-class work. The 
Advocate Shop deserves the patronage of the Conference. We, therefore, urge 
that our Boards and institutions and people generally turn what work they can 
to the job department of our own printing plant for thereby we will be enabled 
to produce a better Advocate for the service of the Church. 

We further recommend that the Conference elect D. B. Coltrane to succeed 
himself on the Methodist Board of Publication and that Bishop Mouzon appoint 
A. W. Plyler, Editor and Assistant Business Manager of the Advocate.

TEMPERANCE AND SOCIAL SERVICE— REPORT NO. 1 

CONCERNING TEMPERANCE AND PROHIBITION 

Throughout its entire history our Church has fought, labored and prayed for 
temperance, and when the movement began for control of the liquor traffic, 
first by State legislation and later by Federal enactment, the Church again fought, 
resolved and prayed that this movement might be embodied in the laws of the 
land. 

This year sees the close of a decade of National Prohibition by Constitutional 
Amendment with supporting laws. Where has it brought us? In comparing 
the conditions that existed in our States twenty years ago, and in the Nation 
ten years ago, with conditions today in the matter of temperance, evary observ- 
ant and thinking person must conclude that our prohibition laws have been 
increasingly efficient. 

Where has the Church stood? We present herewith a review of its actions 
on this question throughout the years: 

1918 Resolution. 1st: "That this Conference memorialize the approaching 
session of the General Assembly to ratify the national prohibition amendment." 

1919. "We hail with delight this code (The Volstead Act) which gives 
assurance that this nation is determined to stop the illicit making and dealing in 
intoxicating liquors." And "The liquor traffic is an anarchist and will obey no 
law unless forced to. Therefore, faithful and efficient law enforcement officers 
are needed. Our people should see that no other sort are elected." 

1920. "We rejoice in the great prohibition victory by which legalized 
beverage intoxicants have been banished from our country. But we cannot ignore 
the danger to prohibition threatened in the possible repeal or amendment of the 
Volstead Act, to which Act we would pledge our loyal support." 

1921. "The practical annulment or any serious weakening of the Volstead 
Act now adroitly sought by the liquor forces would prove an unspeakable 
calamity." And, "Therefore we would reqpmmend that all our people use 
every practicable means available to secure the enforcement of the prohibtion 
law: By electing congressmen who favor adequate enforcement of the 18th 
Amendment under the unmodified Volstead Act." And, 2nd: "By displacing 
unfaithful local and State officers with such as would merit and command the 
co-operation of all loyal citizens." 

1922. "We recommend that this body go on record as favoring legislation 
that will harmonize our State laws with the Volstead Act and legislation that 
will give power, authority and funds to the attorney-general to enforce our 
prohibition laws." 

1923. "Our place in the matter of law enforcement is to get behind the 
law as a people, and the better way to do this is to organize the religious and 
moral fortes in every county for law enforcement." 

192+. The Conference endorsed the Turlington Act, providing for the 



62 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

removal of officers who are lax in the enforcement of the prohibition laws. 

1925. "Believing- that the real fight is still ahead for enforcement of the 
Prohibition Law, we urge the continuance of our efforts to uphold and encourage 
the public officials whose duty it is to discover, arrest and conduct the trial of 
violators of the law. We know that powerful forces are working- in subtle 
ways to discredit the results of prohibition and to create sentiment for the repeal 
of the Volstead Act. We can help by serving on juries when called, by giving 
verdicts in accordance with the evidence and by commending the local news- 
papers that uphold law enforcement." 

1926. "The insidious propaganda that is being carried on in the press for 
discrediting prohibition calls for vigorous rebuttal on the part of Christian 
citizens. The next few years will be crucial for the maintenance of the Volstead 
Law. We pledge our hearty co-operation to the Anti-Saloon League of America, 
as the Church in action, for temperance and law enforcement." 

192 7. "We recommend that this great Conference go on record as opposed 
to the nomination to public office of any candidate in state or nation who is not 
an outstanding advocate of the 18th Amendment and a supporter of the dry 
laws." "We beg our preachers, Sunday School teachers and all Christian workers 
to so influence, as they have opportunity, the Superior Court and Municipal 
Court judges and mayors of small towns that they shall impose maximum punish- 
ment for all violations." 

Where does our Church stand today on this question? Shall we retreat, or 
keep silence? God forbid! Every great moral advance made by a nation has 
both its political and its moral aspects. No nation, no Church, can long exist 
unless the ministry and membership of the Churches shall have both the right 
and the duty to speak upon the moral issues of every proposal that has to do 
with the destiny of our people. 

We, therefore, declare our unalterable opposition to any amendment of the 
Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; to the repeal 
or modification of the Volstead Law; or to the repeal of the Acts of our General 
Assembly for the control of the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors. 
We have the law and the law suits us. 

We urge the support of those candidates, and only those, who favor a vigorous, 
fearless and honest enforcement of these laws as now written on our statute 
books. We believe that they are ample in scope and penalties; that they are 
enforceable and are enforced wherever the officers whose duty it is to see that they 
are enforced, are faithful to their trust and receive full support of public senti- 
ment and we do not propose to be moved from the position of this, our holy 
Methodism.

MRS. W. A. NEWELL, Secretary.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS 

The outstanding event of this century has been the signing of the multi- 
lateral treaty by representatives of the great nations of the earth. We rejoice 
that our nation has helped to furnish the leadership for this instrument in which 
the signatory powers "solemnly declare, in the name of their respective peoples, 
that they condemn recourse to war for the solution of international controversies, 
and renounce it as an instrument of national policy in their relations with one 
another" and "agree that the settlement of all disputes, of whatever origin, 
shall never be sought except by peaceful means." 

We believe that is a great advance toward securing peace in the world and, 
therefore, 



Western North Carolina Conference 63 

BE IT RESOLVED, that we hereby pledge our active support to this under- 
taking' and urge the Senate, in response to public opinion, to ratify the treaty 
promptly when presented. 

INDUSTRY 

We reaffirm our adherence to the Social Creed of the Churches. 

Our Conference territory is rapidly becoming one of the great industrial areas 
of this continent. This evolution from a rural section into factory and urban 
centers, with the attendant shifting of population, will open to us possibilities 
for marvelous expansion and entail inescapable responsibilities. We must develop 
all existing fields as they are established, and seek a broader understanding of 
Methodism's relation to economic needs. 

We rejoice in the homogenous character of our population. This common 
origin of employer and employee is the basis of our progress and to it is due 
the fine understanding which exists between capital and labor in this State and 
we hope that in the expansion of our industries there may be no importation of 
ideals or policies alien to this fine Southern tradition. 

For the benefit of all who toil, for the preservation of the hope, for the 
improvement of the product, and for the stabilization of industry we urge 
both employer and employees to join with us in urging the gradual and com- 
plete elimination of night work for women and adolescents and we seek the 
co-operation of all lovers of humanity in securing wise and conservative legisla- 
tive enactment for accomplishing this purpose. 

(Signed) W. B. SHINN, Chairman, 

MRS. W. A. NEWELL, Secretary. 

PROHIBITION AND THE METHODIST CHURCH 



bishop Mouzon read, the following, which is published by Conference order: 



PROHIBITION AND THE METHODIST CHURCH 

During the past few months complaint has repeatedly been made that the 
Methodist Church has gone into politics. But the situation is exactly the reverse. 
Politics has unfortunately invaded territory belonging to the Church. The 
Church is interested in religion and in morals. This sphere belongs by divine 
right to the Church of Jesus Christ. The Church will not now be driven from 
its rightful field just because the major political question of the hour has to do 
with morals and religion. For morals and religion cannot be divorced the one 
from the other. Religion concerns itself with morals both public and private. 
Religion has to do with human life in all its relations. Christianity is con- 
cerned not only in the salvation of individual souls beyond the grave, but in 
the redemption of human society from the evils that afflict mankind in this 
present world. No evil greater than the liquor traffic has ever afflicted the race. 
It has always brought in its train poverty, ignorance, lust, and crime. 

By all our past history the Methodist Church is committed to the cause of 
prohibition, and we have no notion of abandoning that cause at the crucial 
time when prohibition has been made the chief issue in a national campaign. 

In order that everyone may see at a glance exactly what the record of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South, is; and in order that our own Church 
members may see how Methodism has through the years been committed to the 
cause of prohibition, I set down here some of the important actions taken by 
the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. It will be 
understood that the General Conference, which meets every four years, is com- 
posed of ministers and laymen in equal numbers representing all the Annual 
Conferences of the Church and is the one law-making body of the Church. 



64 Minutes of the Thirtv-Ninth Session 

The General Conference meeting in Asheville, North Carolina, in 1910, 
adopted unanimously the following: 

"The Methodist Episcopal Church, South, has ever gone before the world 
as the unalterable foe of the liquor traffic and is a prohibition Church that will 
never consider a compromise with this heinous sin." (Journal of the Sixteenth 
General Conference, page 167). 

The General Conference meeting in Oklahoma City in 1914 unanimously 
adopted the following: 

"We condemn the liquor traffic as the greatest menace of our day to the 
welfare of business, society, and the Church. We regard it as a public nuisance 
which must be abated if our civilization is to be saved ; we demand that the 
rights of sober, peaceful, law-abiding citizens be respected and that they be 
protected from the dangers to property, family, happiness, and life which always 
accompany the open saloon. We insist that men have no right in the exercise of 
so-called personal liberty to continue a traffic which infringes ruthlessly, per- 
sistently, and destructively upon the rights of others; we declare that the time 
has come when the protection of the law of the land must be taken from 
this horrible traffic in the bodies and souls of our children. And the man who 
insists upon gratifying his greed by the destruction of his neighbors shall be 
branded as a criminal to be dealt with as all other offenders against the peace 
and order and uplift of society." (Journal Seventeenth General Conference, 
p. 325-326). 

It will be observed that the above quoted actions were taken before the adop- 
tion of the 1 8th Amendment. 

The General Conference meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1918, during the 
World War, took action insisting that 

"Both the manufacture and the sale of intoxicating liquors should be prompt- 
ly prohibited as a war measure without waiting for the ratification of the con- 
stitutional amendment." 
And urging as a reason for the adoption of prohibition as a war measure 

"The fact that the government, itself, is earnestly and persistently appealing 
for the conservation of food and fuel and for additional labor for shipyards, 
munition plants, and farms; practically all business has been suspended for days 
at a time, schools and colleges and even churches have been closed for lack of 
fuel ; our people have been requested to have heatless days, meatless days, wheat- 
less days, and to eliminate waste in every possible way; and yet the brewers and 
saloons of the country have continued to waste foodstuff and fuel and to impair 
the efficiency of labor in mines, factories, munition plants, and shipyards, so 
that during the present year while England has reduced her output of beer from 
3 6 million to 12 million barrels and Germany has reduced her output to 7 
million barrels, the United State has increased its output to 60 million barrels." 
(Journal Eighteenth General Conference, p. 277-278). 

It will be seen from the above action that during the World War, at a time 
of national crisis, the liquor business was, as ever, a criminal and a traitor. 
And, as always, the Methodist Church was in the battle for the destruction of 
this enemy of mankind. 

The General Conference meeting at Hot Springs, Arkansas, in 1922, adopted 
the following: 

"Since the meeting of the last General Conference the Federal Prohibition 
Amendment has been adopted, forbidding the sale, the importation, the exporta- 
tion, the transportation of intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes in the 
United States and insular possessions. This amendment became the law of the 
land on January 16, 1920. By the adoption of this amendment, the partnership 
of the United States with the traffic in intoxicants was forever dissolved and the 
traffic became an outlaw. 'Earthly, sensual, devilish,' it still lives. But it lives 
as the outlaw lives, desperate and defiant. Branded by the law of Christian 



Western North Carolina Conference 65 

love as criminal, it is now branded by the law of our country also. We rejoice 
in the overthrow of this, the giant evil of our modern times. And we especially 
rejoice that Methodism has, from the beginning of the conflict, led the vanguard 
of the conquering army. It is an acceptable tribute to our efficient activities 
that the liquor interests throughout the world denounced Methodism as one of 
the most potent factors in securing American prohibition. We remember that 
the beloved disciple said, 'Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you,' and 
we are pleased to be hated by the enemies of righteousness." (Journal Nine- 
teenth General Conference, page 240). 

At the General Conference meeting in Memphis in 1926, the Bishops of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in their address to the General Conference 
(a message similar to the President's message to Congress) spoke as follows: 

"The national prohibition law is the most remarkable social enactment of 
any great nation to promote the general welfare by the restriction of the 
activities of the individual. The full effect of such a law will not be secured 
immediately, or even in a decade. That the results already secured are exceed- 
ingly beneficial is evident to any impartial observer, and there is good reason to 
expect greater benefits in the future. The practical question today is whether 
the prohibition law shall be nullified or shall be properly enforced. The in- 
dustrial, social, educational, moral, and religious forces of the nation, led by 
its Christian citizenship, overthrew the legalized liquor traffic and secured national 
prohibition. The same great forces must unitedly fight with equal vigor and 
persistence the outlawed criminal traffic and the would-be nullifiers of the law. 
Adequate appropriations should be made by state and nation to provide a sufficient 
number of men with salaries commensurate for such important, dangerous work. 
Prosecution of offenders should be speedy; penalties by judges and jury should 
be adequate; violators of the prohibition law, however prominent, should be 
branded as criminals. Above all, there must continue ever-increasing emphasis 
upon the educational process in the press, in the pulpit, and in the school, setting 
forth the evil of alcoholism and the destructive results of lawlessness upon the 
entire fabric of the national life." (Journal Twentieth General Conference, 
page 322). 

In harmony with the suggestion of the Bishops in the paragraph quoted 
above, the General Conference created a Board of Temperance and Social 
Service charged with the duties of carrying forward in the Church and in the 
nation the work of education along the lines indicated. This Board is now 
actively at work. (See pages 235 and 237). 

The above quotations will show the consistent record of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, during the past 1 8 years. The public at large may 
be sure that from this record the Methodist Church will never recede. By this 
record the Church now stands and by this record we shall ever stand. 

Let it be reiterated that in sounding a note of alarm the Methodist Church 
cannot now be charged with going into politics. At a time of national danger 
the Church and her ministers cannot consent to be silent. The Church cannot 
be silent without betraying a trust. The Church could justly be charged with 
going into politics, if the Church, as such, were to unite with some particular 
political party, or if the Church should seek the assistance of some particular 
party to further its ecclesiastical interest. The Methodist Church seeks no political 
preferment and desires the aid of no political party. Indeed, at the present time 
the Church, if necessary, stands ready to suffer if only the cause of righteousness 
shall thereby be advanced. It seeks no political advancement and stands detached 
from all political parties. But it does stand, as always in the past, committed 
to moral and religious principles, and from these principles the Church will 
not now be driven. As we have seen from the records of General Conference 
action quoted in this paper, the Methodist Church through her ministry and her 
membership did her full share in having the prohibition amendment written into 



66 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

the Constitution of the United States. By our own actions we stand. And wa 
rise up now in defense of the constitution of our nation. 

So far from forsaking the principles for which Methodism has always stood, 
we have now begun with renewed energy to fight for those principles. We have 
begun anew to rally our forces for a persistent and nation-wide campaign which 
shall make it forever impossible for any considerable group of men to lead 
in a movement, to acquiesce in a scheme, to lift the ban of outlawry from that 
arch-criminal, the liquor traffic. We admit that following the adoption of the 
eighteenth amendment, we took too much for granted and became somewhat 
inactive and lost the spirit of the crusader. But now once more our spirits have 
been stabbed broad awake. The path of duty lies plain before us, and without 
turning back, we shall steadily follow it till we reach the desired goal. We 
call to our side all like-minded men to co-operate in saving America from a 
return of the liquor business in any form whatsoever.

BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES— REPORT NO. 1 

For fifteen years the Southern Assembly at Lake Junaluska, N. C, has been 
owned and operated by a private corporation for the benefit of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South. But now the stockholders have legally donated their 
equity in all the property of the Southern Assembly above the par value of the 
stock to the General Board of Lay Activities of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, to be held in trust and administered for said Church and to be conveyed 
in fee simple to the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, when conditions accept- 
able to the General Conference have been complied with. 

The Board of Lay Activities, after careful consideration, have agreed to 
accept the trust, and will now become responsible for the management of the 
institution and for making provisions to liquidate the indebtedness. 

We desire to call your attention to the following facts: 

1. The property which the Board will hold in trust for the Church consists 
of the following: Six hundred acres of land; two hundred and fifty acre lake; 
an auditorium with seating capacity of 3,500; one hundred and thirty-five room 
hotel; nine hole golf course; administration buildings; boat house; bath house, 
parks, roads, etc. This property is worth several times the amount of indebt- 
edness. 

2. Among the schools, conferences and camps held annually at Lake Juna- 
luska are the following: 

Sunday School Leadership Training School. 
School of Missions. 
Epworth League Assemblies. 
Laymen's Conference. 
Bible and Evangelistic Conference. 

Junaluska Summer School (Affiliated with Duke University) . 
Junaluska Summer School of Religion (Under joint auspices of Duke 
University School of Religion and General Sunday School Board). 
Young People's Conference. 
Camps for Boys. 
Camps for Girls. 
Sermons, lectures and Chautauqua features. 

3. One plan for liquidating the indebtedness of the Southern Assembly is 
the sale of lots to Churches. There are approximately 2,400 lots for sale at 
$500, $750 and $1,000 each. These lots will be sold to Churches on the follow- 
ing terms: One-fourth cash, the balance in three equal annual installments, no 
interest on deferred payments. This plan contemplates that Churches purchas- 
ing lots will erect summer lodges thereon so that at different periods during the 
summer season Sunday School workers, Leaguers, laymen, missionary society 
workers, other groups of the Church, the pastor and his family, may occupy the 
lodge and attend the various conferences in which they may be interested. 

This plan has been submitted to a number of Churches in this and other 
Conferences and has been approved. Among the Churches in this Conference 
which have already agreed to purchase lots, or have the matter under considera- 
tion, are the following: Central Church, Asheville; Centenary-West End, 
Winston-Salem; West Market Street, Greensboro; Main Street, Gastonia; Central, 
Shelby; Lincolnton; Thomasville; High Point; Hawthorne Lane, Charlotte; 
Monroe; and Waynesville. 

In view of the action of the stockholders of the Southern Assembly and the 
General Board of Lay Activities, and in view of the great service being rendered 
to the Church by the Southern Assembly, we make the following recommenda- 
tions: 



68 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

1 . We heartily endorse the action of the General Board of Lay Activities 
in accepting the property of the Southern Assembly as Trustee. 

2. We approve the plan of selling lots to Churches and urge the laymen 
of the Churches to purchase lots and erect summer lodges thereon. 

3. We urge the laymen in the territory of this Conference to supplement 
the funds received on the sale of lots by making gifts to be used in liquidating 
the indebtedness and for making needed improvements. 

4. We request the pastors and Church lay leaders to call the attention of 
our congregations, through the Church Bulletins and from the pulpit, to the 
various meetings scheduled for Lake Junaluska, and to the importance of the 
Southern Assembly as an educational institution of our Church. 

(Signed) CHAS. H. IRELAND, Chairman, 
E. A. COLE, Secretary. 



BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES— REPORT NO. 2 

Your Board of Lay Activities, after a careful study, feels that it is entirely 
proper to urge every member of the Conference to make a careful study of 
Chapter XIX of the Discipline of 192 8 for the purpose of getting acquainted 
with the duties of lay leaders and the Board of Lay Activities. 

ORGANIZATION OF THE LAYMEN 

We most earnestly desire the counsel and co-operation of the Presiding Elders 
and pastors in getting a Board of Lay Activities and the necessary Lay Com- 
mittees organized and working effectively in every local Church. We call 
special attention to the necessity of organizing the Stewardship Committee in 
every Church as early as possible in order to make 1929 effective as "Steward- 
ship Year." 

COLLECTING THE BENEVOLENCES 

Chapter XIX, Section 4, of the Discipline of 192 8, charges the General Board 
of Lay Activities with the responsibility of initiating plans for collecting the 
benevolences. That Board has definite plans for reaching and securing a con- 
tribution from every member of the Church, but these plans cannot be made 
effective without the constant, whole-hearted co-operation of Presiding Elders, 
Pastors, Lay Leaders, and the Boards of Lay Activities in the Conference, dis- 
tricts and charges. Cards for an every-member canvass will be furnished free of 
charge by application to the Conference Lay Leaders. 

At the session of our Conference in 1927 the Chairman of all Conference 
Boards, the members of the Budget Commission, and the members of the Con- 
ference Board of Lay Activities voluntarily formed a Conference Commission 
of Benevolences which we earnestly hope will enter heartily into the work of 
cultivating the Church and of securing full collections. 

We most earnestly urge those who apportion the assessments to the charges 
to do their work in such a way as to make it possible to collect the full amount 
from every charge. 

We urge that 50% of the assessments be collected in every charge and sent 
to the Conference Treasurer before the next meeting of the District Conference. 
It often happens that early collections mean full collections, while on the other 
hand belated efforts produce meager results. Wherever it is possible, Churches 
should adopt the plan of paying the assessments up to date on the first day of 
every month. To do this it will be necessary to make a complete and thorough 
every-member canvass.

It is our earnest desire not only to proceed further in the study and practice 
of the principles of Christian Stewardship, but also to carry the Stewardship 
message to every member of the Church. If every member of the Church was 
a Christian Steward, there would be no lack of trained workers in any department 
of Church work, and there would be sufficient money to send preachers of the 
Gospel into every community on earth. 



STEWARDSHIP YEAR— 1929 

Acting under the authority conferred upon it by the General Conference, 
the General Board of Lay Activities has designated 1929 as "Stewardship Year." 
It is our earnest desire to have a course in Christian Stewardship taught in our 
Conference Pastors' Schools, to have a course "taught in the training schools 
conducted by our Sunday School Board, and to have Stewardship institutes con- 
ducted in all the districts and Churches. During Stewardship Year large use 
should be made of pamphlets and books on the subject of Christian Stewardship. 



LAYMEN'S DAY 

The third Sunday in May has been designated by the General Board as Lay- 
men's Day, on which appropriate lay services should be conducted in every 
Church. We earnestly request that the Pastors and Lay Leaders co-operate in 
planning and conducting lay services on that day. It is hoped that both the 
Pastors and Lay speakers will take part in the services and that the most import- 
ant phase of Lay Activities shall be presented to the congregation. 

LAYMEN'S CONFERENCES 

During the year 1929 there will be several Conferences of Church-wide im- 
portance to Laymen : 

1. Conference on Religious Education at Lake Junaluska, N. C, in July. 

2. Conference of Lay Leaders at Memphis, Tenn., January 1st. 

3. Conference of Lay Activities, Lake Junaluska, N. C, July 31 to 
August 4th. 

4. At Mt. Sequoyah, Arkansas, August 7-9, Conference on Lay Activities. 

We desire to give public expression to our deep appreciation of the brotherly 
sympathy and co-operation of our Presiding Elders and Pastors in our work and 
to assure them of a continuance of our love and esteem. Our sole purpose as 
Lay Leaders and as Board of Lay Activities is to please God in the work we are 
undertaking. 

We nominate C. H. Ireland for Conference Lay Leader. 

(Signed) CHAS. H. IRELAND, Chairman, 
E. A. COLE, Secretary. 



REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF THE CHILDREN'S HOMF 

We close another year of work and quiet progress at The Children's Horn' 
with 243 healthy and seemingly happy children. 

The year has been made notable by the gift of our new administration build, 
ing. The James A. Gray Memorial was given us by Mr. Bowman Gray, Mr 



70 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

James A. Gray, Mrs. Mamie Gray Galloway and Mrs. Bess Gray Plumly, at a 
cost of $45,000.00. The gift of this building- is unique, in that it has cost us 
nothing to accept it, the donors having given the building itself, all the furniture, 
and paid for all extra costs necessary to make a house habitable. 

Bequests from Mrs. E. G. Pusey, Mrs. Mary R. Severs, Mrs. Amanda Webster, 
Joseph P. Chavier and S. A. Ogburn, totaling $13,700.00, have been received 
during the year. 

Our finances are in good shape, but we note with apprehension that our 
income from the churches is not keeping pace with the growth of the Home. 
We have always lived within our income, and have never closed a year in debt 
for operating expenses. But if we are to maintain this good record it is necessary 
that we enlarge our income, or else we must cease to enlarge our capacity for 
children. But we cannot stop growing while there are so many children of 
Methodist parentage who are homeless. 

We can stop growing only as we shut our eyes to the needs of helpless child- 
hood, and stop our ears to their appeals for help, and crush back the impulses of 
human sympathy and quench the spirit of love given us from God. 

There are 297 charges in the Western North Carolina Conference. Of this 
number 2 1 gave nothing at all to aid our work for orphan children during the 
year just closing. Twenty-five gave less than ten dollars, and 46 gave less than 
twenty-five dollars. 

It is a pity that the preachers in charge of these delinquent Churches could 
not be awakened to the needs of the children, so that they could and would 
teach their people, for we know that anything which quickens the sympathies of 
men to the point of active helpfulness improves their spiritual condition. 

The ten per cent assessment is by far the largest and surest source of income 
from the Churches, and the nearer it approaches full collections from all the 
charges the better for our work. But we cannot hope for an increase from this 
source sufficient for our needs. It is to the fifth Sunday offerings we must look 
to for the growth of our work for dependent children. 

Of the 872 Sunday Schools in our Conference, only 497 made any direct 
contribution to our work. Some of the larger schools are among those neglecting 
us. 

This offering should be pressed for the opportunity it affords for instructing 
the people, especially the young, in the need, the nature and the extent of this 
important work. It is a place to train the young to give to this cause and every 
good cause. It is a blessing to any Church that faithfully uses it. It is valuable 
for the money it brings, and also for the time the money comes. About half the 
ten per cent is paid at Conference. We must wait for it through the whole year, 
even though it is needed every day. But the fifth Sunday offering comes four 
times a year, bringing refreshment of spirit like the summer rains, saving us 
from sinking so deeply into debt and reduces the risk that large borrowing 
always entails. T. F. MARR. 



REPORT OF HOSPITAL BOARD 

Constrained to express regret last year that the Conference did so little for 
the Golden Cross, we gladly record our gratification this year for marked im- 
provement. The Conference has contributed $750.00, seven districts responding, 
Charlotte District leading in the number of pastoral charges, also in the amount 
collected. We earnestly urge our pastors and people to do still better by this 
one fund for free service, and we recommend that the Southern Methodist 
Hospital and Sanatorium at Tucson, Arizona, be the beneficiary of the Golden 
Cross Enrollment. While the need is greater than the service rendered, we grate- 
fully record $350,000 from the Church at large for free service this year. 



Western North Carolina Conference 71 

We now own and operate eleven hospitals worth well over eight million 
dollars, ministering to some twenty-five thousand patients, as against eight hos- 
pitals a year ago. Our General Secretary writes: "The year just passed has 
seen remarkable advances in hospital work. All of our hospitals have been well 
patronized and have rendered conspicuous service." 

We request continuance of our commission for hospital prospects within our 
bounds — W. H. Webster, T. A. Hathcock, and H. K. Boyer. 

We recommend that L. W. Colson be appointed to the chaplaincy of U. S. 
Veterans' Hospital No. 60, Oteen, N. C, that he be appointed Executive Secretary 
of the Conference Hospital Board and Director of the Golden Cross, and that he 
represent our Conference in the Hospital Association of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South. 

We request the appointment of Rev. Carlock Hawk as a member of this 
Board to fill vacancy caused by resignation of Rev. R. H. Daugherty. 

We request our Commission on Budget to appropriate at least $250.00 for 
the expenses of our Board during the incoming Conference year. 

(Signed) H. K. BOYER, Chairman, 
L. W. COLSON, Secretary. 



REPORT OF BIBLE BOARD 

We believe that the Bible is given by inspiration of God. We further be- 
lieve that the Holy Scriptures contain all things necessary to salvation, so that 
whatsoever is not read therein or proven thereby is not required of us. We also 
believe every person has the right and ought to have the privilege of reading or 
having read the Holy Word and of private and personal interpretation of the 
same. 

Believing these things, we deem it a privilege and regard it a duty to give 
the Bible to those who do not have it. The American Bible Society, which has 
done such noble work in distributing the Bible, is the agency through which we 
are striving to have some part in this necessary work. In our budget is an item 
for this purpose. 

We urge that in presenting the benevolent claims to our people, along with 
Missions, Church Extension and other worthy claims, we place emphasis on 
giving the Bible in the language of the people, to those who do not have it today. 

(Signed) JNO. W. MOORE, Chairman, 
H. L. POWELL, Secretary. 



THE SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE CHURCH 

It seems fitting that some official record should be kept of the spirit of this 
Conference. Both from the pulpit and the pew has come an expression of a 
felt need of spiritual power on the part of our people. Insofar as our Commit- 
tee is able to determine, that is one of the most hopeful signs of our present time. 
When we come to the place where we are ready to face the fact that we are 
lacking, then and only then are we in a position to open our lives to Jesus. 

However, the Committee feels the need not only of beginning but continuing 
and putting into practice the noble aspirations of this Conference. We all recog- 
nize that one of the most serious faults in our Church today is the lack of a 
spirit of worship. In all the services of the Church we need more sincerity, more 
reverence and more humility, all of which virtues were so clearly manifested in 
the life of our Lord. 

Perhaps the next most vital point to consider is the home life of our people. 
While the modern home is very different from the home of a few years age 



72 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

its importance has not changed. There is a danger that this will be forgotten. 
Your Committee, therefore, exhorts both preachers and laymen alike that they 
use their influence to perpetuate the Christian home by urging the reading of the 
Bible and family worship. One of our great modern philosophers has said, 
"If I could be omnipotent for ten minutes the thing I should like to do for the 
world would be to restore the practice of family worship in the homes of the 
world." The Church and home must also co-operate in rearing our sons and 
daughters in such a way that there will continually flow into our social life a 
Christian character which will meet every crisis in these trying times. 

While our Church has had a brilliant record in its efforts to uplift humanity 
your Committee at this time thinks it wise to remind you that one of the chief 
characteristics of Methodism in its beginning was its tireless efforts in behalf of 
the less fortunate. Many times on Sunday morning we sit complacently in our 
pews while a stone's throw away people are dying both body and soul for the 
food which we could so richly give. We must not only make one spasmodic 
effort each year to awaken our people to the needs of humanity, but we must 
inculcate into their minds and hearts the spirit of Jesus by continuous personal 
evangelism on the part of both preachers and laymen which will send them 
in and out among our fellows knowing that they have the responsibility of 
bringing in the Kingdom among men. 

There seems to be a danger today that the burdens of Church finance, 
building, and organization will blind the eyes of our people to the great spiritual 
values. The unseen realm of God at times gets blotted out in the turmoil of 
things. Our hope now as always lies in a concerted effort on the part of both 
preachers and laymen through fervent and devoted life to bring to the hearts of 
men the spirit of the living God. "O may our hearts and lips confess the holy 
Gospel we profess." 

(Signed) E. E. WILLIAMSON, Chairman, 
M. T. HIPP, Secretary. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON SABBATH OBSERVANCE 

One of the special ways in which God showed His love for men is His pro- 
vision that one day out of seven be particularly reserved for the development of 
the highest and best in him. We are enabled to know the terrible possibilities 
of a life without such a day by observing the debased condition of those who 
have forgotten God, and are living in heathendom. We need to remember that 
keeping the Sabbath holy lies at the foundation of all spiritual development 
and that a general and utter disregard for its sacred privileges and duties will 
inevitably plunge any nation, sooner or later, into an awful condition of im- 
morality, lawlessness and atheism. The conditions under which we live are not 
conducive to a devout observance of the Sabbath. New industrial and com- 
mercial conditions seem to demand a vast amount of labor on the Sabbath; the 
greater prosperity of our people and greater ease in travel being also a greater 
temptation to make the Sabbath a holiday j the vast increase of number of social 
contacts, whether sought by us or forced upon us, tends to make God's day rich 
in social fellowship, but too often bare and unfruitful in the things of the spirit, 
the unprecedented output of reading matter of current interest too often dis- 
places the Bible and devotional literature from the rightful place of privacy in 
the homes and hearts of our people. 

Perhaps the most regrettable thing is the complacency with which we have 
come to regard the situation. We would urge our preachers and people, both 
by precept and example, in every reasonable way to check this unwholesome 
tendency and to demand for ourselves and others the opportunity for rest and 
worship on this good day. Our industrial and commercial leaders should diligent- 



Western North Carolina Conference 73 

ly seek to reduce necessary labor to a minimum, and then, if at all practicable, 
to require the labor of any one person for only a part of the day; promiscuous 
visiting should be earnestly discouraged; and all of us should seriously determine 
to safeguard this, our holy day, from business cares, home duties and social 
responsibilities in every possible way. 

(Signed) W. L. DAWSON, President, 
J. A. BALDWIN, Secretary. 

JOINT COMMISSION ON CHURCH AT CHAPEL HILL 

Your Commission on the Church Building at Chapel Hill submits the fol- 
lowing report: 

The erection of the church building at Chapel Hill was completed nearly 
two years ago, and the various furnishings, such as pews, carpet, pulpit, and 
communion furniture, have been installed. The plant is proving itself adequate 
as a social, educational, and religious center for the 900 Methodist students who 
attend the University, and, on account of its strategic location with reference 
to town and University, fully meets the demands made upon it by the students, 
local congregation, and community. 

At the last sessions of the two co-operating Conferences, action was taken to 
secure $12,000 from each Conference as a special fund to reduce the indebted- 
ness and to provide a small maintenance fund, the present indebtedness on the 
Church being $72,318.18. 

At a meeting of the Joint Commission and the Board of Stewards of the 
local Church at Chapel Hill held on October 11, 1928, an agreement was reached 
by which the Chapel Hill congregation will assume $10,000 of this indebtedness 
with interest from date, provided the Conferences assume the remaining indebt- 
edness of approximately $62,000. This would make the total contribution of 
the local congregation to the building program, including Church and parson- 
age, $34,000. 

Your Commission therefore recommends that the two co-operating Confer- 
ences assume an equal part of this indebtedness and that the plan to carry this 
item as a special be continued, that an amount of $10,000 be asked from each 
Conference the coming year, and that the Commission on Budget be requested 
to allot this asking to the several districts of the respective Conferences. 

The financial statement of the Commission as of October 1 1 is attached. 
It will be seen that interest on the whole indebtedness will be due in December 
in addition to a payment of $3,000 on the principal of the note to the Jefferson 
Standard Life Insurance Company. The money to meet these obligations was 
supposed to have been collected during the year now closing, and the urgency of 
the situation confronting the Commission is obvious. 

Your Commission has been most favorably impressed with the work with 
the students and University community made possible through the efforts of the 
Conferences, and bespeaks the sustained support of the Conferences and their 
Boards of Missions in continuing the program now being carried out at Chapel 
Hill.

Western North Carolina Conference 75 

REPORT OF JOINT COMMISSION 

The Joint Commission of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and the 
Methodist Protestant Church of North Carolina, submit the following report: 

1. We are glad to note that the sending of Fraternal Messengers from the 
Conference of one denomination to those of the other has brought about a better 
understanding between the denominations, and has also aided in creating a closer 
Christian Fellowship. So far, so good. But your Committee feels that the time 
has come when these two denominations operating in the same territory, fighting 
a common foe, and striving in the same way to build up the Kingdom of 
Jesus Christ in North Carolina, should begin a closer and a more active co- 
operation in a few communities in this State. This, we believe, can be done to 
the glory of God and to the advancement of His Kingdom. 

We believe that in a few communities like Liberty, Siler City, Gibsonville, 
Osipee-Altamahaw, West Burlington, Graham, Haw River, Mebane and other 
like communities where there is a Methodist Episcopal Church, South and a 
Methodist Protestant Church, and where pastors of these Churches are serving 
on salaries ranging from $400 to $1,500, that in such communities surely God 
would have us exercise business judgment and common sense and religion suf- 
ficient to begin to work out a plan by which one Methodist pastor may serve 
each one of these communities, instead of two pastors as we now have. At 
present, pastors in such communities are having to serve on salaries which are 
scarcely living salaries when they could pay one decent salary, and in some 
cases, have a resident pastor where there is no resident pastor. We recommend, 
therefore, that this scheme be tried out definitely in certain carefully selected 
communities. 

We suggest the following plan of operation for the beginning of the co- 
operation in the communities which may be chosen. And we express the hope 
that the plan will work so well that many similar communities will soon be thus 
co-operating. 

THE PLAN 

(1) The Methodist Episcopal Church, South, shall appoint a pastor to one 
of the communities, and the Methodist Protestant Church shall appoint a pastor 
to the other one. 

(2) The pastor when thus appointed shall preach one Sunday in the Metho- 
dist Episcopal Church, South, and in the Methodist Protestant Church the next 
Sunday, thus alternating, and thus giving half time to each Church for the 
entire year. And he shall be the pastor of all Methodists represented in the 
membership of both Churches in the community to which he has been assigned, 
and his salary shall be paid jointly by the two congregations. And it shall be 
the pastor's duty to conform to the rules and regulations laid down in the 
Discipline of each Church in holding Quarterly Conference, and in making report 
of his work, and of the money raised to the two Conferences he is thus serving. 

(3) The Sunday School in the two Churches shall continue as at present, 
and the pastor shall divide his time equally between the two. 

(4) The Ladies' Aid Society and the Woman's Missionary Society shall 
also continue as at present, or in accordance with the laws of their own Church. 

(5) The pastor may hold mid-week prayer service in each Church, or he 
may hold a union mid-week prayer service as per agreement with the congrega- 
tions concerned. 

(6) The pastors may also hold two revival services, or one union revival 
service for the two Churches as per agreement with the congregations concerned. 

(7) The property of each Church in the respective communities shall be 
held just as it is now held. 



76 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

2. We commend most heartily the effort to wisely consolidate rural Churches 
where it can be done to the advantage of Kingdom interests. 

3. We recommend to the Annual Conference that an invitation be extended 
to the Christian Church (The O'Kelley Branch) to elect six members to co- 
operate with this Commission. This invitation to be extended through the Com- 
mission on Methodist Co-operation when sanctioned by the respective Annual 
Conferences. 

4. Following the agreement of a year ago, that the term of office of two 
members of the Joint Commission, representing each of the two denominations, 
should expire each year, Rev. C. B. Culbreth and Fred N. Tate were nominated 
by the group of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, for the election by their 
Conferences, respectively, the North Carolina Conference and the Western North 
Carolina Conference. The matter of electing two members by the Methodist 
Protestant Conference was referred to the Nominating Committee of that Con- 
ference.

A. G. DIXON, Secretary. 



REPORT OF MANAGERS OF PASTORS' SCHOOL 

The work of the Pastors' School marks a distinct advance with each year, 
both in the numbers reached and in the class of work done. 

For the first time all classes, this year, were open to women, and the Mis- 
sionary Societies of the two Conferences co-operated in the work. The Epworth 
League also offered courses. With this fuller co-operation of pastors, Sunday 
School forces, Woman's Missionary Societies, and Epworth Leagues, the school 
continues to expand. 

The Dean, Prof. J. M. Ormond, submits the following statistical report:

REPORT OF THE DUKE FUND COMMISSION 

In submitting another report of this Commission we would call attention to 
the following items: 

1. Rev. E. F. Lee has been nominated to represent the Board of Church 
Extension of the North Carolina Conference on the Commission, and Rev. J. M. 
Ormond has been nominated to represent the Board of Missions of the same 
Conference on the Commission. 

2. Last summer The Duke Endowment sent out twenty-two young preachers 
to assist pastors on country circuits. The work done by these men was of a 
high type and justified the continuation of this plan. We would advise pastors 
who desire student assistants next summer to send in applications to Professor 
Ormond soon after Conference. The following statistics indicate a few of the 
results obtained on the circuits where these young men were placed as assistants 
last summer: 

The twenty-two men served 101 Churches and preached 442 sermons. They 
assisted in 60 revival meetings which resulted in the addition of 299 new members, 
255 being received on profession of faith. They conducted 43 training classes 
during the summer with a total of 270 credits issued. 17 Vacation Bible Schools 
were conducted with a total enrollment of 831. 

3. We desire to express our endorsement of the resolution in the report of 
the Board of Managers of the Pastors' School, 1927, requesting that the Con- 
ference continue to publish in the Journals the report of each Church in the 
circuits, and heartily commend this action on the part of the Board of Managers. 

4. There will be forthcoming in the near future a book by Professor 
Ormond containing much valuable information about rural conditions in North 
Carolina, with especial attention given to the country Church. 

5. We repeat our statement of a year ago, viz.: The effort to aid in 
building Churches by securing plans and advising in the undertaking is making 
headway, but there is still need for fuller co-operation between local committees 
and the office at Durham. A joint effort of patient planning and careful co- 
operation will save the embarrassment of heavy debts and the failure to get 
money to carry out certain plans, too often ill suited to the situation.

R. M. COURTNEY, Secretary. 



78 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

METHODIST MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY 

Your Board of Directors find the condition of your Insurance Company as 
follows on October 1, 1928: 

Insurance in force -____ .$1,800,460.00 

Surplus as regards policyholders 5 3,123.29 

During the year losses o± $5,522.73 were paid in full, including $4,000.00 
paid to our own Rutherford College. 

We recommend that all Boards giving aid to Churches require that the prop- 
erty shall be adequately insured and preferably in our own company. 

We recommend that the Presiding Elders be requested to nominate or appoint 
at the First Quarterly Conference an Insurance Agent, without pay, for every 
charge, to co-operate with the Trustees to the end that all our Church property 
may be well insured. 

We recommend the election of C. A. Wood as Director, whose term shall 
expire in 1933. 

The interest and support of the Church has not been as strong and universal 
as it should be in order to enable the company to serve the Church to the degree 
anticipated by its founders. Unless the Church shows more interest right soon, 
it might be wise to close out The Methodist Mutual Fire Insurance Company. 
Therefore, your Directors recommend that they be authorized to wind up its 
affairs at any time they deem advisable, provided the rights and interests of 
the Church and policyholders are fully protected. 

(Signed) E. A. COLE, Chairman, 

W. A. NEWELL, Secretary.

MINUTES OF THE CONFERENCE BROTHERHOOD 

The twentieth annual session of the Western North Carolina Conference 
Brotherhood met in First Church, Charlotte, N. C, at 2:30 P. M. on October 
2 7, 192 8, W. L. Sherrill, President, in the chair. The devotional service was 
conducted by H. C. Sprinkle. The minutes of last annual meeting were 
approved as printed without reading. The Treasurer's report showed that seven 
members have died during the year and that sixteen hundred dollars had been 
paid to each claimant except the last two to whom there is still due $2,700.00. 
Deducting this amount leaves a balance in bank of $3,127.77. On motion it 
was ordered that the Treasurer settle with the seven claimants on the basis of 
the action recorded in the minutes of last year. The following motion was 
made by J. W. Moore and carried, that eighteen hundred dollars be the amount 
of the benefaction to each beneficiary of the Brotherhood for the Conference 



Western North Carolina Conference 79 

year, 1928-29, and successively until a reserve fund of not less than $3,600.00 
is secured. 

As the next annual meeting will end twenty years of the Brotherhood under 
the new series, it was ordered that the Treasurer make an exhibit of the achieve- 
ments of the Brotherhood during the last twenty years and present it at the next 
meeting. 

The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: W. L. Sherrill, 
President; W. R. Ware, Vice-President; C. M. Pickens, Secretary and Treasurer. 
The chair then appointed H. C. Sprinkle and W. L. Dawson members of the 
Executive Committee. 

The Brotherhood adjourned with the benediction. 

(Signed) W. L. SHERRILL, President, 
C. M. PICKENS, Secretary. 

HISTORICAL SOCIETY MINUTES 

The annual meeting of the Historical Society of the Western North Carolina 
Conference was held in First Methodist Church, Charlotte, at 7:30 P. M., 
Tuesday, October the 23rd, 1928. Dr. C. C. Weaver, President, was in the chair. 

The opening devotional service consisted of the singing of Hymn 141, "When 
I Survey the Wond'rous Cross," prayer led by Rev. T. A. Sikes of the North 
Carolina Conference, and a selection, "The Old Rugged Cross," rendered by the 
local quartette. The minutes of the session of 192 7 at Central Church, Asheville, 
were read by the Secretary and approved. 

A nominating committee consisting of A. W. Plyler, T. J. Rogers, and C. M. 
Pickens was appointed by the chair. 

A collection to meet the expenses of the Society was taken, and $42.3 was 
contributed. This sum and the collection of 1927, amounting to $11.73, were 
paid to the North Carolina Christian Advocate on account. 

The Committee on Nominations made its report, recommending for President, 
W. E. Poovey; Vice-President, R. M. Courtney; Secretary-Treasurer, W. G. 
McFarland; member Executive Committee succeeding himself, W. L. Sherrill, 
and they were elected. 

Dr. Weaver then introduced the speaker of the evening, Dr. Paul N. Garber, 
Professor of Church History in the School of Religion, Duke University. Dr. 
Garber delivered an excellent address, the subject being "Can we follow in their 
tread?" He magnified the heroic spirit of the early Methodists. 

Following the address, Bishop E. D. Mouzon, assisted by the presiding elders 
of the Conference, celebrated Holy Communion, administering the sacramental 
elements to a large congregation. 

(Signed) W. G. McFARLAND, Secretary.

Memoirs 



REV. DANIEL ATKINS, D.D. 

Rev. Daniel Atkins, son of Daniel and Elizabeth Moore Atkins, was born 
in Grayson County, Va., August 28, 1846. He was the youngest of twelve 
children, six sons and six daughters. Ten of these grew to maturity. Daniel 
grew up on a farm, going to school in the winter. At the age of seventeen he 
joined the Confederate Army, serving a little more than a year with the fifth 
regiment of the Virginia reserves. He came home at the close of the war 
broken in health, worked on the farm a year and taught three country schools. 

Dr. Atkins was converted and joined the Methodist Church in early life, 
was licensed to preach at Lebanon Church, Grayson Circuit, Holston Conference, 
April 18, 1868, Rev. John M. McLean, Presiding Elder, Rev. W. W. Bays, 
pastor. He was admitted on trial into the Holston Conference October 4, 1868, 
and appointed to Spencer Mission, 1871. In 1872 he was a student at Emory 
and Henry College. December 21, 1875, he was married to Miss Anna Chap- 
man, Asheville, N. C. Of this union four children were born, three of whom 
are living: Mrs. C. E. Gash, Weaverville; Misses Elsie and Margaret Atkins, 
Asheville. 

The following is the list of appointments he served in the Holston Confer- 
ence: 1868, Spencer Mission; 1869, Kingston Circuit; 1870, Charleston Station; 
1871-1872, located and a student at Emory and Henry College; 1873, readmitted 
into the Holston Conference and appointed to Emory Circuit; 18 74, Ducktown 
Station; 1875, Cleveland Station; 1876-79, Presiding Elder of Franklin District; 
1880-81, Abingdon Station; 1882, Bristol Station; 1883-86, President of Weav- 
erville College; 18 87, transferred to the Northwestern Conference and stationed 
at Corvallis, Oregon, and elected President of Corvallis College to 1890; 1891, 
transferred to the Western North Carolina Conference and stationed at Hender- 
sonville; 1892, Statesville; 1893, Editor of the Raleigh Christian Advocate; 
under his administration the two church organs at Raleigh and Asheville were 
united into one publication with headquarters at Greensboro; 1894-95, States- 
ville; 1896-99, Presiding Elder of the Asheville District; 1900-0 3, Presiding 
Elder of the Winston District; 1904-06, Presiding Elder of the Salisbury Dis- 
trict; 1907, Mount Zion Station; 1908-11, Presiding Elder of the Asheville 
District; 1 9 1 2, Murphy Station ; 19 1 3, West Asheville; 19 14-1 7, Chestnut Street, 
Asheville; 1918, Fletcher and Flat Rock; 1919, Mount Pleasant; 1920, Asheville 
Circuit; 1921-23, East Biltmore; 1924-25, Elk Mountain; 1926-28, super- 
annuated. 

During the sixty years of Dr. Atkins' ministry he received twenty-eight ap- 
pointments, was located and a college student two years, and was on our Honor 
Roll nearly two years. For many years he was one of the leaders of the 
Western North Carolina Conference. On June 4, 1928, he died at the home 
of his daughter, Mrs. C. E. Gash, in Weaverville, following a slight stroke of 
paralysis. The funeral service was held June 5 in the Asbury Memorial 
Methodist Church, Asheville, with Rev. George D. Herman in charge. The 
active pallbearers were the trustees of Weaver College and the ministers of 
Asheville and Buncombe County were the honorary pallbearers. " 

The Asheville Times had the following to say of Dr. Atkins immediately 
after his death: 

"Well can it be said of the Rev. Dr. Daniel Atkins that he fought a good 
fight and kept the faith as a servant of God in the Christian ministry. As 



Western North Carolina Conference 149 

preacher, presiding elder, college head, editor of a church paper, Dr. Atkins 
spent 58 years as a Conference member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. 

In his long life Dr. Atkins saw many revolutionary changes in American 
life. Through all of them he passed with calm philosophy and robust faith. 
He kept abreast with modern thought, and yet he took no part in the bitter 
controversies of Modernists and Fundamentalists. He wrote and spoke for the 
cause of reuniting the Northern and Southern branches of the Methodist Church, 
but his influence was that of a conciliator and not of an advocate who stirred 
up animosities. 

The influence of such a life runs deep and wide through the communities in 
which it spends itself. Dr. Atkins leaves a name, and a record of devotion to 
high ideals that will long live after him." 

Dr. Atkins organized and built many churches in his long ministry: Oakley, 
Woodfin and Hendersonville in the Asheville District; also at Statesville and 
Winston-Salem in the more recent years. While President of the Board of 
Trustees he was largely instrumental in securing a new building at Brevard 
Institute and turning that institution over to the Woman's Board of Home Mis- 
sions. He was twice a delegate to the General Conference. He never thought 
any work to which he was assigned too hard or unworthy of his best efforts. 
His daughter, Elsie, says this of him : "He was loyal and true to all the interests 
of the church at all times, and it was hard for him to give up the active work 
when he was unable to go on. In all the hardships and struggles I never knew 
him to show discouragement. He had absolute faith in people and loved every 
body." This is a beautiful tribute by one who knew him long and loved him 
with true devotion and undying attachment. And this tribute finds today a 
warm and hearty response with all who knew and loved "Uncle Dan" so well. 
We shall miss his smiling face and warm brotherly greetings. We recall with 
tender memories his message sent this Conference last year through the com- 
mittee that bore him our love and sympathy as he lay on a sick bed at his home 
in Asheville: "Tell Bishop Mouzon and the brethren I love them all, and if I 
should not meet with them any more down here I will be waiting for them 
over on the other side, in the great Conference above. I am ready to go." 

That was the last time I looked into his pleasing, sunny face. But I feel 
that I voice the sentiment and purpose of the whole Conference when I say 
I shall see him again, "when we are come unto the city of the living God, the 
heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels. To the general 
assembly and church of the first born which are written in heaven." 

"Where congregations ne'er break up, 
And Sabbaths have no end." 

Till then, "Uncle Dan," a loving good bye. We will meet you in the 
morning. W. R. WARE. 



REV. CLAIBORNE McMILLAN CAMPBELL 

Rev. Claiborne McMillan Campbell was born in Walker County, Ga., Janu- 
ary 12, 185 1, the son of T. J. and Sallie Bearden Campbell. His first marriage 
was in 1872 to Miss Kate Ashcraft of Memphis. To this union four children 
were born, three of whom survive, J. A. of Memphis; C. M., Jr., of Winston- 
Salem; and J. W. of Charlotte. The only daughter, Mrs. George Bell, died a 
few years ago. Two sisters survive, Mrs. W. C. Withers and Mrs. Eugene Beall, 
both of Chattanooga. 

While he served as Presiding Elder of the Franklin District Mrs. Campbell's 
health failed, and early in his pastorate at Cornelius she died. His second 
marriage was in 1901 to Miss Emma Connelly of South Carolina, who for 26 



150 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

years labored faithfully with him, sharing his joys and sorrows incident to the 
Methodist itinerancy. 

Worn and weary, with 42 years of valiant service behind him, on Sunday 
morning, November 2 7, this faithful man of God passed to his reward. How 
fitting that his coronation should have been on the Lord's day and so near the 
hour the sorrowing women found the empty tomb. 

Brother Campbell joined the Holston Conference in the year 1885. Prior 
to this, however, he had, as a local preacher, served for a number of years as 
city missionary in the city of Chattanooga. At the time of the organization of 
the W. N. C. Conference (1890) he was serving the North Asheville Mission. 
Though a Holston Conference product, he cast his lot with us as a charter 
member of our Conference. 

His appointments in this Conference with the years of service follow: 

North Asheville Mission, 1890-91; Gastonia Station, 1892-95; Albemarle 
Circuit, 1896; Brevard Street, Charlotte, 1897-98; Franklin District, 1899-1900; 
Cornelius, 1901-1902; Farmington, 1903; Thomasville, 1904-1905; Randleman, 
1906-1908; Waxhaw, 1909-1911; Davidson College, 1912-1913; Granite Falls, 
1914; Race Street, 1915; Bursar Davenport College, 1916; Spencer Memorial, 
1917-1919; McAdenville, 1920-1923; East End, Gastonia, 1924-1927. 

He possessed a logical mind and broad human sympathies. He was interested 
in people, their problems, their life decisions, their successes. He was, in turn, 
loved by people in all walks of life. His conversation was always interesting, 
and especially so when he talked of early Methodism in the Holston country. 

Two years on the Franklin District and one as bursar of Davenport College 
bear witness to his ability as a man of affairs. His heart, however, was in the 
pastorate; and here he rendered his most conspicuous service. 

He loved to preach. To him preaching was feeding the flock of Christ. He 
made new sermons to the last, because new situations called for new treatment. 
Not so long ago a friend asked him : "Brother Campbell, do you believe in 
the intermediate state, or do people at death go immediately to their reward?" 
His reply was, "You just wait until Sunday and I will preach on that subject." 

He declined to lose his bearings in this changing modern age of ours. 

Hopeful, sympathetic, cheerful, he served his day and generation, helping 
mightily in "bringing heaven a little nearer our earth." He was one of the 
youngest old men I ever saw. Young people followed him gladly. In his 
pastorate the Epworth League flourished. Whether at the efficiency institute, 
the district league union, or the standard training school, you might look for his 
benign and saintly face mingling with the boys and girls and young people. 
All felt, too, that his presence was a genuine benediction. 

Brother Campbell was amazingly resourceful. Once when I assisted him in 
a revival meeting a number of bright boys and girls presented themselves for 
church membership. The parents, however, objected, claiming that these children 
were not old enough to understand the obligations of membership. He called 
an eleven o'clock service on Saturday for both children and parents, turned it 
into a catechetical service and won the day. By questioning both parents and 
children he soon demonstrated the fact that the children were as ready for church 
membership as were their parents. 

His prayers were mighty to the tearing down of Satan's stronghold. When 
he. led us, 

"Heaven came down our souls to greet, 
And glory crowned the mercy seat." 

His prayer of dismissal at the Lincolnton District Conference was memorable. 
He sent us out with a tremendous spiritual glow to face the last lap of the 
Conference year. 

He was a man of positive convictions and was not afraid to lead a reform 



Western North Carolina Conference 151 

when necessary. This I saw him do on his last pastorate. A place of amuse- 
ment near his church had become a public nuisance. Nobody saw quicker than 
he its harmful effects on his people. A gentlemanly protest from him only 
brought the reply that the amusement company was within the law. Calling 
his faithful people to his aid he soon brought such pressure to bear that the 
amusement company vacated and moved away. 

Despite the insistent call for young men, he served his last two charges, 
McAdenville and East End, four years each. At the end of his third year at 
East End he and I planned for lighter work for him the next year. This plan 
was abandoned only at the unanimous and urgent plea of his people for his 
return. He never wore out except in body. In his 75th year his people wanted 
him returned for the fourth year of service. 

And the explanation is not far to seek. He spent his last ounce of strength 
in Christ-like service for his people. I have known him to rise at midnight in 
response to the cry of a soul in distress. 

With broken health he continued to be the good minister of Jesus Christ. 
For a number of weeks before giving up East End last year he spent the days 
in bed, husbanding his strength, only to rise on Sunday and preach with power 
to his congregation. Even in the hospital while lingering on the very border- 
land, he spoke to the nurses of Christ and told them what thev must do to be 
saved. 

Through months of suffering he never murmured nor complained. His 
thoughts were of Jesus and the glory world. Near the end he sang the old songs 
of Zion, and assured loved ones that he would soon be with Christ the Saviour. 
We miss his genial smile today, but we know where to find him. 

Brother Campbell's last days were spent in the Baptist hospital, Winston- 
Salem, and here the Methodist pastors visited him, bringing good cheer to a 
stricken comrade. Two of these, Dr. C. C. Weaver and Rev. C. A. Wood, 
conducted his funeral in the First Church, Charlotte, November 29, 1927. 
Interment followed in Elmwood Cemetery. C. S. KIRKPATRICK. 



REV. LUCIUS TISDALE CORDELL 

Rev. Lucius Tisdale Cordell was born February 10, 1862, and died May 
27, 1928. For 42 years he was a faithful preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ. 
Born at a time when the guns of internecine strife were filling the whole 
country with heartaches, and growing up in the sorrowful and needy days of 
reconstruction there was little chance for an education. But he took advantage 
of what schools there were and learned how to study. He was always a student 
and a thinker. No man ever followed more seriously the advice of Wesley: 
"Never be unemployed; never be triflingly employed." He was from early life 
a reader of great books. The inevitable result was that he became a real scholar, 
and even in early life a great preacher. As the years passed his store of know- 
ledge multiplied and his wisdom increased, and he became more and more a 
man of power. 

But the most distinctive thing about him was that he was a man of prayer. 
He knew God personally. Jesus was his best friend. The Holy Spirit was his 
constant companion. It was inevitable that such a man should have a fruitful 
ministry. He was ever a builder — not so much in wood and stone, though he 
did that too, but in the things of the spirit. Men under him got a new vision 
of God. He was no actor. Men and women and even little children felt his 
sincerity, and were moved to worship the God who meant so much to him. It 
may truly be said of his preaching what Paul said of his own, "His speech and 
his preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstra- 
tion of the spirit and power." 



152 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

He loved the country. Birds and beasts and all growing things had for 
him a special appeal. The murmur of running water was music to him. He 
reverently looked at the stars at night, drank in of their glory and silently 
worshipped the God who sent them into space. In the quiet of the country he 
could take time to think. There he pondered over the problems of life and 
death and the great beyond. There his heart found rest and peace in God's 
glad companionship. He cared little for the pretty phrases dear to society; he 
was too deeply absorbed in the great worthwhile things to care much for ap- 
pearances. It is easy to see that the life and work of the farmer would particu- 
larly interest him. He knew the farmer's life, understood his thoughts, sympa- 
thized with the continual hazard of his crops, and brought him a message that 
met Ills needs. Though he found great happiness in the country his work 
in the city was also of a high order because he loved people and was always 
glad to serve human need anywhere. 

Every charge he served he built up. Some were almost completely revo- 
lutionized. It was said that he literally prayed some communities to the very 
throne of God. Some of his meetings lasted for weeks and refused to be closed 
even for the annual Conference. No earthly standards can measure the value 
of such a life. And yet he was one of the most modest and unassuming of men. 
Those who appreciated him most in all of his charges were the thinkers and 
forceful men and women of the community. Years ago Dr. John R. Brooks, 
one of the greatest of North Carolina Methodists, said to the writer: "One 
of the best preachers in our Conference is L. T. Cordell." The great Baptist 
preacher, Dr. George W. Truitt of Dallas, Texas, in a recent letter to his widow 
said: "Your husband was one of the noblest' men I ever met, and I thank God 
for him upon every thought of him. Although he has been removed from 
this earthly sphere, yet his influence will go on and on." 

He was happily married Christmas, 1885, to Miss Emma Haigler in Murphy, 
N. G, where they were both teaching. The next fall he joined the Holston 
Conference at Knoxville and was appointed to Webster, N. C, thus beginning 
a ministry of 42 years of arduous labor, of mingled joys and sorrows, in the 
itinerant ministry of the Methodist Church. His appointments were as follows: 
Webster, 1886-88; Haywood, 1888-91. The Western North Carolina Confer- 
ence was organized in 1890 and his appointments in this Conference have been: 
Hayesville, 1891-92; Murphy, 1892-94; Leicester, 1894-97; Gold Hill, 1897- 
98; Mt. Pleasant, 1898-1901; Randleman, 1901-04; Lenoir Circuit, 1904-05; 
Mt. Airy District, 1905-07; Polkton, 1907-11; Waynesville District, 1911-15; 
Haywood Street, Asheville, 1915-16; Brevard Street, Charlotte, 1916-19; Polk- 
ville, 1919-22; Bryson City, 1922-24; Leicester, 1924-26; Elk Mountain, 1926- 
27; Weaverville Circuit, 1927-28. 

He preached at his regular appointments one Sunday. In the middle of the 
week he became seriously sick, and the next Sunday he went home to God. 

When he perceived the evening shadows falling across his pathway his 
thoughts turned to the beautiful scenes of his boyhood on Haw Creek, just out 
of Asheville. There on a few ancestral acres he built a modest but comfortable 
little home and from it served his last two charges. 

He was greatly comforted in his last years because he saw his children and 
his grandchildren following in his steps as faithful servants of his Lord. Besides 
his widow, one son and five daughters survive. 

On Sunday, May 27, at the time of evening worship, the bell.s of Heaven 
called him to worship with the glorified hosts of the better world. 

J. A. BALDWIN. 



Western North Carolina Conference 153 

REV. IRA ERWIN 

Ira Erwin, son of Ira and Martha Erwin, was born in Waco, Cleveland 
County, October 20, 1862. He was the fifth in a family of seven children. 
In early youth he was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, at St. Paul's Church near his father's home. It was in his childhood 
home and in this fine old country church that Brother Erwin learned his first 
great lessons that made it possible for him to develop his stalwart character 
and live his remarkably useful life. He was one of the large number of young 
men who were educated at Rutherford College. He attended Rutherford in 
the days of its founder, Dr. R. L. Abernethy. After graduation he taught 
school for a number of years, all the while realizing that he was called of 
God to the gospel ministry. At the age of twenty-five he entered the ministry, 
and for forty years he was a faithful minister of Jesus Christ. No higher 
tribute can be paid to any man than this, "A faithful minister of Jesus Christ." 

Brother Erwin joined the North Carolina Conference at Fayette ville in 
1887 and served the following charges: Leasburg, 1888-89; Burkhead, Wins- 
ton-Salem, 1890-91; Hendersonville, 1892-94; Thomasville, 1895-96; Mt. Zion 
Station, 1897-98; Franklin, 1899-1902; Centenary, Greensboro, 1903-05; 
Waynesville, 1906-07; Lenoir, 1908-09; Brevard St., Charlotte, 1910; Marion, 
1911-13; Murphy, 1914-15; Davidson, 1916; Asheboro, 1917-19; Norwood, 
1920-21; Maiden, 1922-25; Davidson, 1926-27. At the Conference in Asheville 
in 1927 he was appointed to Westford Charge, Concord. He had just entered 
upon this work when the summons came. 

In 1892 he was married to Miss Minnie Ector. To this union were born 
two sons, one of whom died, and the other, John Ira, lives in Durham, N. C. 

This union was broken by the death of the wife on January 30, 1896. His 
second marriage was to Miss Bessie A. Thomas of Thomasville, on April 6, 
1897. To this union were born six children, five of whom survive the father. 

Ira Erwin was a man of tender and loving sympathy and at the same time 
of strong convictions. He would not willingly or needlessly hurt the feelings 
of any one, yet he was not the man to lightly surrender a principle. Out of his 
own experience he preached the love and the goodness of God. At the same 
time he was fearless in his denunciation of sin. His warnings were clear and 
emphatic, yet tender with sympathy and love. His was a growing experience. 
Through the years in him the Christian graces were constantly coming nearer 
to perfection. Only a few days before the call came to him, while he was yet 
in his usual health, I spent an hour with him talking of our Christian experi- 
ences. So far as I know he had no thought that day as we talked together that 
he was to go away from us so soon, yet I have thought since his going that he 
talked as one who knew that he was standing on the border of the "Land of 
pure delight." I felt that day and I have continued to feel that I had had the 
privilege of looking into the heart of a true man of God. Brother Erwin 
died in the harness. There were only two days of sickness. The end was less 
than twelve hours away when it was realized that he was seriously ill. Early 
Monday morning, December 12, 1927, he closed his eyes on earth to open them 
in the presence of the Master whom he had loved and served. On Tuesday, 
December the 13th, the funeral services were held by Dr. Z. Paris, his Presiding 
Elder, and his body was carried to Waco in Cleveland County and laid to rest 
among the hills that had been dear to him from his childhood. A good man 
and faithful has gone from among us. R. M. COURTNEY.

REV. WILLIAM E. HAUSS 

Rev. William E. Hauss, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Hauss, was born in 
Lincoln County, January 14th, 1890, and departed this life September 15th, 
192 8. Very early in life he gave his heart to God and joined the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, placing- his membership at Bollingers Chapel, which is 
now on the Burke Circuit. He attended the public schools of his community, 
then entered Rutherford College. On receiving his preparation he. went to 
Randolph-Macon College, then to Duke University. 

On December the 25th, 1918, he was married to Miss Mary Elizabeth 
Powell of Burke County. To them were born three children, Harry, W. E., 
Jr., and Olive Hauss. 

Having received the call of God to preach His gospel, he applied for license 
and was admitted on trial into the Western North Carolina Conference in 1919. 
His first assignment was to Rutherford College as an instructor in that institu- 
tion. He remained there for four years. The Conference then appointed him 
to the China Grove Charge, in the Salisbury District, where he gave his service 
without stint or reserve tor four years. In these different positions of honor 
and responsibility he served with credit to himself and the utmost satisfaction 
to those directing his services. He was truly a man of God. He could say with 
the apostle, "I know him in whom I have believed." He was also a true friend 
of man. He was never happier than when trying to make others happy. He 
bore the marks of the hero. He suffered much, but was always cheerful and 
pleasant. He seemed to forget his own suffering in seeking to comfort others 
who were suffering. If he had burdens, and surely he did, he kept them to him- 
self. To know him was to love him. The people of China Grove loved him 
as few men are loved. At the close of his third year there, his health was such 
as to question the wisdom of his return; but his people appealed to his Presiding 
Elder and said, "We had rather have Brother Hauss sick than anyone else well." 
So he was returned for the fourth year, but was forced, because of the wrecked 
condition of his health, to give up the fight. When put on the inactive list 
last fall at* Asheville, his good friends in China Grove insisted that he locate in 
their midst. To this he agreed and he and his family were the recipients of 
their love and favors until God called him to the heavenly world. 

He led his people in the erection of a splendid church building in China 
Grove, and for several hours his body lay in state at the altar of this new 
building. A brief service was held there, conducted by his Presiding Elder, 
Dr. Paris, assisted by the Writer of this sketch. It was then carried to his home 
church in Burke County where the services were concluded. In the midst of 
hundreds of sorrowing friends, the body was laid to rest to await the call of 
the just. J. F. MOSER. 

REV. JACOB WINBORN STRIDER 

Jacob Winborn Strider, son of William and Clara Strider, was born in Ran- 
dolph County August 13, 1856, and died February 10, 1928, at his home in 
Concord, N. C. In early life he was converted and joined the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South. He joined the Alabama Conference in 1882, where 
he served for three years. In 1885 he transferred to the North Carolina Con- 
ference and when this Conference was divided he became a member of the 
Western North Carolina Conference. The following are his appointments: 
1886, Junior preacher, Montgomery Circuit; 1887, Columbus Mission; 1888-89, 
Forest City Circuit; 1890-91, Pleasant Grove Circuit; 1892-93, Uwharrie Circuit; 
1894-95, East Uwharrie Circuit; 1896-97, Supernumerary; 1898, Proximity 
Station; 1899, Rockford Circuit; 1900-03, Jacksonville Circuit; 1904-06 Pilot 
Mountain Circuit; 1907-08, Lincoln Circuit; 1909-10, Polkville Circuit; 1911, 



Western North Carolina Conference 155 

Lowesville Circuit; 1912-14, Albemarle Circuit; 1915-16; Gold Hill Circuit; 
1917-19, Kerr St., Concord; 1920, New London Circuit; 1921, Matthews; 
1922-23, Unionville Circuit; 1924-25, Elmwood Circuit. At the Conference 
at Statesville in 1925 he was granted the superannuate relation. He continued 
to labor till the very end. On the last Sunday that he spent on earth he preached 
two sermons and then went to hear Bishop Mouzon preach at the evening hour 
in Forest Hill Church. Almost every Sunday found him in a pulpit somewhere 
proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Brother Strider loved to preach. He 
had a message for sinful men, a message of salvation, of love, hope and power. 
His message was born out of his experience and constant study of the Bible. 
In his preaching as in his life he was quiet and unassuming. He made no 
effort at display, but was so earnest and sincere that he was always impressive 
whether in the pulpit or in private conversation. His sermons were well pre- 
pared and delivered with force, often with the demonstration of the Spirit's 
power. One of the remarkable things about him were his prayers. Those who 
heard him in his public prayers felt that he was consciously communing with 
the Father. No man can pray as this man prayed unless there is the constant 
practice of the presence of God. . On December the 5th, 18 85, he was married 
to Effie Jane Morgan of Montgomery County, who shared the joys and trials 
of the itinerant life with him. She, with seven children still survive. After 
his superannuation, with his wife and youngest child, Miss Anna, he seemed 
supremely happy in their home in Concord. Freedom from the burdens and 
cares of the pastorate brought a sense of relief. Was he to enjoy the quiet 
home life, the privilege of preaching from time to time as opportunity afforded, 
without the burdens and responsibilities of the pastorate? It was just this that 
had apparently come to him, and this he had earned through those more than 
forty years of hard work. But upon this scene the angel came. There were 
a few days of slight indisposition, nothing alarming. Friday evening, February 
10, he spent in reading and conversation around the family circle. A little 
rest on a couch, then scripture reading and prayer. Then preparation for 
retiring when suddenly he reclined on the bed for that sleep from which there 
is no waking in this world. The funeral was held in Central Church, Concord, 
Sunday, February 12, by Dr. Z. Paris, R. M. Courtney, Rev. T. F. Higgins, 
and Rev. A. G. Loftin. " R. M. COURTNEY. 



REV. ROBERT McKINLEY STAFFORD 

Rev. Robert McKinley Stafford, son of J. F. Stafford and Ada (Curlee) 
Stafford, was born in Mecklenburg County, N. C, June 22, 1893, and died in 
a Charlotte hospital March 1, 192 8, after several weeks of suffering. 

His body was brought to Mooresville, his former home, for burial. The 
funeral service was conducted in Central Methodist Church by Rev. J. E. Aber- 
nethy, his Presiding Elder, assisted by Rev. J. P. Hipps and other members of 
the Conference. His body was interred in the Mooresville cemetery. 

Brother Stafford was born and reared on the farm, and when he reached 
young manhood he decided to specialize in dairying and butter making. In 
order to fit himself for this work he took a two-year course in dairying and 
butter making at State College, Raleigh, N. C. He then took a post-graduate 
course at Purdue University, where he received his diploma as an expert butter 
maker. He took a position with the Mooresville creamery, which he held for 
about two years before yielding to the call to the ministry. In early life he 
united with the Presbyterian Church, the church of his parents. When he 
reached maturity he found himself more in accord with the doctrine and polity 
of the Methodist Church and united with it. 

On May 3, 1916, he was happily married to Miss Susie Tomlinson of 



156 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

Mooresville, who was a great help and inspiration to him in his efforts to pre- 
pare for the ministry. They had one son, R. M. Stafford, Jr., a promising lad 
about ten years old. When he was finally convinced that he ought to preach, 
he gladly gave up his chosen work for the work the Master had called him to 
and immediately began to make preparation for this new field of service. 

In the fall of 1919 he entered Rutherford College and spent three years there 
completing the course at Rutherford and then entered Trinity College, now 
Duke University, where he graduated in June, 1924. 

He was admitted on trial into the Western North Carolina Conference in 
192 3 and appointed a student at Trinity College. After his graduation the 
following June he was appointed Junior preacher at First Church, Hickory. He 
served in this position for three and one-half years. Meanwhile a new work 
was started, as a special Home Mission, in Highland, a suburb of Hickory, 
sponsored by and largely financed by members of First Church. Brother Staf- 
ford was actively in charge of this work and largely instrumental in the building 
of a splendid new church and built up a very promising work in that part of the 
city. Starting with nothing here, he and his good wife gathered a few folks 
together in the Community House, organized a Sunday School and later a 
church was organized, and at the end of three and one-half years left a nice 
church building and a membership of 147 well organized. At the last Con- 
ference it was made a separate charge and in a short time ought to be self- 
supporting. 

He was ordained Deacon in 1925 by Bishop Denny, Elder by Bishop Mouzon 
at the last Conference in 192 7, and appointed from this Conference to Lenoir 
Circuit, where he was beginning what gave promise of a very successful pas- 
torate. But in the midst of his labors he was stricken with influenza from which 
he never recovered. He fell with his armor on, having fought "the good fight 
of faith." For three and one-half years the writer and Brother Stafford were 
closely associated in the work, and I knew him intimately and it gives me 
peculiar pleasure to testify to his fine Christian character. He was one of the 
most unselfish persons I have ever known, and seemed to find his greatest happi- 
ness and satisfaction in doing something for someone in need. Quiet, unassuming 
and full of good cheer, he, like his Master, went about doing good to all 
classes and conditions of the people among whom he lived. No doubt in that 
Great Day many will rise up and call his name blessed. He had a great 
ambition to live and serve God in whatever place his service could best be used 
by his church. From our short human point of view, his going away so soon 
after he had entered upon what gave promise of a life of great usefulness, 
seems a tragedy, but God knows best, and that which seems so mysterious to us 
now, will some day be made plain, and we shall understand that God never 
makes a mistake, and what He doeth is the very best that He can do, for He 
sees the end from the beginning. We shall miss his kindly face and genial 
smile, but hope to meet him in a better country where sickness and sorrow, 
pain and death are neither feared nor felt. Peace to his ashes. 

H. H. JORDAN. 



REV. JACOB ROBERT MOOSE 

Jacob Robert Moose, son of Jacob and Nancy Holt Moose, was born near 
Albemarle, N. C, July 28, 1864. His mother and father having died while 
he was quite young, he lived with his relatives in different sections of the central 
part of the state while growing into young manhood. 

He was graduated from Trinity College in 1892. He joined the Western 
North Carolina Conference in 1892 and was appointed to Burkhead, Winston- 
Salem, 1893-94; Epworth, Concord, 1895-96; Troutman Circuit, 1897; Ashe- 



Western North Carolina Conference 157 

ville, Bethel, 1898-99. At the Conference of 1899, he was appointed to Korea 
where he served during the greater portion of twenty-five years. 

On account of health conditions in his family he was transferred to the 
North Carolina Conference and served the Wallace and R*ose Hill Charge about 
two years. He then returned to Korea. 

The first year in Korea was devoted to language study, having made marked 
progress in such study during that time. During the second year he was made 
superintendent of our work in Korea, holding such position a number of years. 
After our work developed and enlarged he served as Presiding Elder till trans- 
ferring to the North Carolina Conference in 1919. 

After returning to Korea in 1921 he was appointed to open a new station 
at Chulwon, where he served till he was first stricken with paralysis August 27, 
1924. Soon afterwards he returned from Korea and settled in Greensboro, 
where he lived till his translation Tuesday night, August 28, 192 8, at 10 o'clock. 

During the different visits to the home-land he was abundant in work, in- 
cluding the visiting of Conferences in behalf of the foreign field. During the 
year 1906-1907 he worked in seven different states, making over 150 addresses 
— including Conferences of the Woman's Missionary Society. Brother Moose 
had a passion for his work, imbued with apostolic zeal. He had marked adapt- 
ability for the missionary work. 

Outside of his own work assigned he rendered much service in evangelistic 
work, including assistance to other denominations. 

As evidence of appreciation of his service he received various gifts, some 
of which he was able to keep as sacred souvenirs of such fellowship and grati- 
tude. Among the marked tokens of high armreciation of the service and kind- 
ness was a tablet placed by the Koreans on the gate of Brother Moose. This was 
dedicated to Rev. J. R. Moose and Mrs. J. R. Moose. The placing of this 
tablet was in accordance with an old custom in Korea used for high officials 
for distinguished service. So far as we know, this tablet was the only one of 
the kind placed in honor of a missionary family bv those people. 

He knew how to find the way into Korean hearts. Before he had learned 
to speak the language a little Korean boy said, "He's all right, he smiles." 
Every one who knew him recalls the cheering smile which he carried wherever 
he went. On a later occasion a Chinese boy having been associated with him in 
the construction of a building, earnestly asked Brother Moose to let him call him 
father. 

Besides evangelistic service he did much work in translating hymns, tracts 
and catechisms. He also did much Bible teaching, including work in the Bible 
institutes. 

A great deal of his foreign field work was initial in establishing churches in 
towns and villages. Upon such foundations other missionaries have built. 

A great host have been led to Christ through his ministry. While attending 
the Columbus Missionary Conference, Ohio, a few years ago a Korean approach- 
ed him with a radiant face and told of his having been led to Christ by Brother 
Moose. 

He assisted young people in securing an education through beneficence. He 
would render manual service in building churches, hospitals, etc. One of his 
last revivals was in Harbin, Russia, in which field he rendered much service 
and which he greatly enjoyed. 

In 1893 he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Durham, Chatham County, 
N. C, an alumna of Greensboro College, who also had prepared for the 
missionary field of service. It is not surprising that, in dedicating the tablet 
already mentioned, the appreciative Koreans should have included the name of 
the consecrated, faithful wife with that of her worthy husband. 

He combined gentleness with courage, kindliness with frankness, and endurance 
with perseverance. Out of a glowing Christian experience he proclaimed with 



158 Minutes of the Thirty-Ninth Session 

boldness the gospel of Jesus Christ, the divine Saviour of the children of men. 
With love for the erring he uncompromisingly rebuked sin. He lived and 
preached with the conviction that "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, 
and is profitable for doctrine, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 
that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." 

After years of earnest longing for work in the foreign field he threw him- 
self into the foreign missionary service with tireless energy and dedicated his life 
through sacrificial devotion to save Korea ! 

He is survived by his wife and four children. 

On Friday morning, August 31, 1928, the funeral service was conducted from 
College Place Church, Greensboro, by the pastor, Rev. W. A. Rollins, assisted 
by Rev. Messrs. J. B. Craven, N. E. Coltrane and S. B. Turrentine. Interment 
was in Green Hill Cemetery, Greensboro. S. B. TURRENTINE. 

In Remembrance of and Homage to the Morality of the 
Rev. J. R. Moose, the Charity of Mrs. J. R. Moose 

Following the command of Heaven, 
Looking at the people as innocent children; 
Upholding the fatherless, helping the needy, 
Showing mercy to all men. 

Restraining desires and likes of their own, 
But never injure the wicked even; 
Their deeds are lofty and charitable, 
Their speeches are humble and honorable; 
Love the righteous, befriend the truthful, 
Sympathize the afflicted, and rule selves. 

Heaven must be theirs, 
We surely know this; 
. May they be the blessed heirs of ten thousand years, 
Without feeling of the old age, 
To spread the Great Way, to save the multitude! 
This is the supplication of those 
Whose bowed heads, folded hands 
Showing the praise of their virtues!

Appendix 



BOARD OF EDUCATION 

Your Board has had before it representatives and reports from the following' 
institutions: Duke University, Greensboro, Davenport, Weaver, and Rutherford 
Colleges. 

The report from Duke University shows that the building project is being 
rapidly completed and that some of the buildings on the new campus will be 
ready for occupancy by September, 1930. The student enrollment continues to 
increase. The School of Religion has grown from eighteen students in 1926 to 
one hundred and ten in 1929, while the Graduate School of Arts and Science has 
an enrollment of four hundred and twenty-three graduate students. 

Greensboro College has added twenty-eight thousand dollars to her endowment 
during the year. She has also reduced her indebtedness by the amount of two 
thousand and six hundred and ten dollars. A religious spirit pervades the college 
life fostered by a Young Woman's Christian Association, and a Life Service 
Band, each of which has a strong membership. Two outstanding benefactors of 
Greensboro College, Mr. B. N. Duke and Col. Frank S. Lambeth, have passed 
away during the year. The report indicates that Greensboro College is moving 
forward steadily and hopefully. 

Davenport College is making quite an improvement in its buildings and 
getting on a better financial basis. The outstanding need is a gymnasium and 
music building. There is an air of general improvement at Davenport. 

Weaver College is improving the college spirit, developing good citizenship 
in the boy's dormitory, high school students have been eliminated and the enroll- 
ment is becoming exclusively that of college students. All the teachers of last 
year remained with the college this year and one teacher of Home Economics 
has been added. The indebtedness has been reduced by some eight thousand dollars. 
Weaver College recommends election of C. S. Kirkpatrick on Board of Trustees 
in place of Dr. D. Atkins, deceased. The indebtedness of the college has been 
reduced from $29,000 to $19,000 since the audit on June 4, 1929. 

Rutherford College is gradually enlarging- and improving her equipment, 
increasing the enrollment and is getting in much better shape financially. In 
this connection we desire to call attention to the needs of the new church build- 
ing enterprise at Rutherford, and recommend its hearty support to all friends 
of this most worthy cause. 

RESOLUTIONS 

That Greensboro, Davenport, and Rutherford Colleges continue their cam- 
paigns for increasing their endowment funds. 

That Weaver College also enter the field of this Conference to raise a 
building fund of $100,000 to be added to other prospective monies for the 
same purpose, and that the duly appointed soliciting agent be given full access 
to the field and the full co-operation of this, the Western North Carolina Con- 
ference. 

That in compliance with a request from the Secretary of the General Board, 
we recommend: The continuance of Christian Education Day in the local 
churches; the need of a better trained ministry; also that of adhering to the 
law requiring two years of college training for admission on trial; that the 
trustees of our schools use the blanks provided for that purpose when making 
annual reports to the Board of Education; that we make a careful study of 



Western North Carolina Conference 49 

the plan for merging the work of the Sunday School Board, the Epworth League 
Board, and the Board of Education. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

That H. H. Jordan be elected a member of the Board of Managers of 
North Carolina Pastors' School. 

That G. T. Rowe be selected as representative of this Conference Board of 
Education to attend the Methodist Education Association which will meet in 
Memphis, Tenn., February 4-6, 1930. 

That the following persons be elected and confirmed as Trustees for the 
various church schools as follows: 

Duke University: D. S. Elias, P. H. Hanes, Dr. T. F. Marr and Dr. S. B. 
Turrentine to succeed themselves.

That the General Board of Education make appropriations of $1,000.00 and 
$1,200.00, respectively, to the support of the student pastor at our church at 
the North Carolina College for Women, Greensboro, and at the University of 
North Carolina, Chapel Hill. 

That the chairman, vice-chairman, and the secretary be constituted a com- 
mittee to study the survey of the educational conditions of the two Conferences 
in North Carolina, made by request of the Secretary to the General Board, Dr.

BOARD OF MISSIONS— REPORT NO. 1 

Your Board of Missions desires to report on the larger aspects of Missions 
before entering upon a consideration of our own Conference missionary work. 

The coming year marks the close of the first quadrennium of the new mission- 
ary policy of our church, which provides for an intensive period of cultivation in 
January ami February and a free-will missionary offering. The results of this 
policy are well known. It freed our church of a crushing burden of debt. It 



Western North Carolina Conference 51 

stopped the annual deficit in our missionary budget. It enabled us to send out a 
corps of new missionaries to fill up the ranks which had been depleted. It saved 
our missionary work in the hour of seeming disaster. At the same time it has 
stimulated the missionary spirit and increased the missionary knowledge of the 
church in a remarkable degree. During the quadrennium we will have placed 
more than 400,000 missionary books in the homes of our people who do not, 
we fear, buy many religious volumes; this record is unprecedented by any other 
denomination in the nation and will surely result in a deepening of spiritual life. 
The same could be said of the work of the district missionary institute, the school 
of missions, and other features of the new policy. 

This policy has laid work upon us all. Some have felt it to be irksome. But 
it has advanced the Kingdom of the Lord throughout the world, and we are 
ready to gird our loins again in the supreme endeavor. 

We therefore propose for your consideration and adoption: 

1 . We are grateful to God for the success of the missionary cultivation 
movement during the past three years, and we congratulate and thank the 
Presiding Elders, pastors and people whose self-sacrificing work made such 
success possible. 

2. We pledge our hearty support to the movement during the coming year, 
pledging ourselves to work diligently for the success of the study period and 
to endeavor to raise the full share of our Conference allotment in the free-will 
offering. 

3. We hereby respectfully request the Bishop to appoint Rev. R. M. Courtney 
as missionary secretary for the ensuing Conference year. 

4. We respectfully ask our Presiding Elders to hold their missionary insti- 
tutes, provided for in the Discipline, early in January, to make them wholly and 
distinctly missionary, and to name the exact dates and places for these institutes 
before the adjournment of this Conference. 

5. We hereby recommend and nominate R. M. Courtney and J. F. Shinn 
for membership on the General Board of Missions. 

(Signed) E. K. McLARTY, President, 
J. D. RANKIN, Secretary 



BOARD OF MISSIONS— REPORT NO. 2 

In presenting the Report No. 2, distributing the Missionary offering of the 
Conference to 118 charges, which are represented by a membership of 32,468, 
your Board wishes to direct attention to the success of the work being done, in 
terms of increase of membership on profession of faith. The increase for these 
Mission charges is 3.97%. The increase for the entire Conference is 3.28%. 

Your Board suggets that as many as possible of both preachers and laymen 
attend the meeting of the Missionary Council of the General Board of Missions 
to be held at Raleigh, N. C, on December 10th to 12th, 1929. 

The Board of Missions is hereby called to meet with the Presiding Elders 
at Statesville, N. C, on Tuesday, November 19th, 1929, for our regular mid- 
year meeting. 

Their respective terms of office having expired, we hereby nominate the 
following brethren to succeed themselves: 

On the Duke Fund Commission, R. M. Courtney. 

On the Board of Managers, Duke Pastors' School, E. K. McLarty.

BOARD OF FINANCE 



The campaign for Superannuate Endowment balances have been vigorously 
carried on throughout the year with encouraging results. 

Under the plan of the General Board, the campaign has yet one year to 
operate. Therefore, your Board recommits itself and requests that every Presiding 
Elder, pastor and layman recommit themselves to carry on this movement until 
this fund has become adequate to care for the superannuates in a way that their 
years of faithful service deserve. 

We request each pastor to make special effort to raise the quota for his charge 
early in the year, in order that it may be reported to the General Conference 
which meets next May. 

In order to assist the charges in raising quotas, we recommend the reappoint- 
ment of Rev. C. S. Kirkpatrick as Director Superannuate Endowment for 
Western North Carolina Conference. 

We further recommend that those strong charges which have already raised 
their quotas continue their efforts toward the raising of this fund.

BOARD OF CHURCH EXTENSION 

Careful and sympathetic consideration has been given each application sub- 
mitted to this Board. 

It is gratifying to note that applications for aid in most instances are being 
sent in before the Annual Conference convenes. All applications for aid should 
be in the hands of the Secretary of this Board at least two weeks in advance of 
the date on which the Annual Conference is held. 

It also should be borne in mind that the requirement that subscriptions or 
cash for at least three-fourths the cost of any project be secured before applications 
for aid are filed. 

We commend the Building Committees for the many beautiful and well 
arranged churches and parsonages that have been erected during the past year. 
Building Committees are urged to get in touch with our Church Architect at 
Duke University when planning to build. 

Churches and parsonages should be adequately protected by fire insurance. 

We again wish to impress the fact that funds coming into the hands of this 
Board for distribution are very limited, and in making applications for aid this 
should be borne in mind. The total amount asked for is always far above the 
amount that the Board has to distribute.

CONFERENCE TRUSTEES 

The titles to all real estate covered by loans carried by our Trustees have 
been reviewed recently by Thomas C. Hoyle, Attorney, of Greensboro, N. C, 
and a new appraisal of the property made. The reports from this work show 
that all our securities are well protected by first mortgages. These mortgages 
are also guaranteed by Southern Real Estate Co. 

Our Treasurer's books with all securities held by him, including all receipts 
and disbursements for the past year, have been audited by Mr. F. J. Phillips 
of Dixon, Russ & Carter, Certified Public Accountants, Raleigh, N. C, whose 
report is presented herewith. 

The amount of our Treasurer's bond was increased to $20,000 during the 
past year. 



62 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

The following officers of our Board of Trustees have been re-elected: W. R. 
Ware, Chairman ; J. B. Ivey, Vice-Chairman ; I. F. Craven, Secretary and Treas- 
urer. 

(Signed) W. R. WARE, Chairman, 
I. F. CRAVEN, Secretary. 



SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD 

The Sunday school work of the Conference continues to grow in volume and 
effectiveness. The activities of the Board's employed workers during the past year 
have centered around the following major lines of endeavor: 

The promotion of a system of training schools and classes. 

Placing and interpreting of school Programs of Work. 

The setting forth of plans for promoting evangelism. 

Arranging plans for the cultivation of a missionary attitude and the securing 
of more liberal system of giving. 

A study and application of the opportunities for Sunday school extension. 

The promotion of plans for membership increase. 

Emphasizing the importance of home work and co-operation. 

Planning for proper church building. 

A study and promotion of week-day and vacation religious education. 

The promotion of the interests and objectives of Wesley class work. 

The securing of adequate finances for promoting our program. 

Particular emphasis has been placed upon the training of our Sunday school 
officers and teachers. During the year 2 7 standard and 5 5 Cokesbury training 
schools have been held. In these schools, in colleges and through correspondence 
5,95 1 units of credit in our religious educational courses have been earned, this 
number being an increase of 948 over the previous year. We are glad to note 
that 187 of our pastors have joined their Sunday school workers in this studying 
process and have during the year earned one or more units of credit. 

The attention of our pastors has been continually directed to the importance 
of co-ordinating their efforts with those of their Sunday school officers and teach- 
ers in properly spiritualizing the work of the Sunday school. The dynamic 
power and spiritual fervor of our pastors are greatly needed in the proper 
motivation and guidance of our Sunday school workers. 

During the ten-year period ending with 1927 our Sunday school enrollment 
increased from 84,145 to 138,686, an increase of 54,541. However, during the 
year of 192 8 there was a decrease in our enrollment amounting to 2,940. Special 
effort lias been put forth during the present year to overcome this decrease and 
in addition to secure a largely increased enrollment. Assistance has been given 
in making community surveys and in the use of these surveys for reaching our 
unreached constituency- 
Much emphasis continues to be given to the consideration of location, type 
of building and suitable equipment for new and remodeled church buildings. 
In co-operation with the Board of Church Extension and the Duke Endowment 
suggestions have been made and help rendered to local building committees. 
Much building has been done during the year, especially in our rural sections. 

Under the direction of the General Sunday School Board plans have been 
made for the displacement of the three-type Programs of Work previously used 
by our Sunday schools and for the adoption of new Programs of Work provided 
for directing the activities of five types of Sunday schools. It is 'proposed that 
much emphasis will be given to the placement and interpretation of these new 
Programs of Work during the ensuing year. 

In line with the agreement of the Board of Missions and the General Sunday 
School Board, as directed by the Discipline, and in order to train in missionary 



Western North Carolina Conference 63 

motivation and giving, much effort has been put forth during the year in 
encouraging our Sunday schools to observe the fourth Sunday missionary pro- 
gram and to give the offering of the day to the Dual Special, this offering, as 
the name implies, being divided into two parts, one-half going to support our 
mission work in China and religious educational work in all our foreign fields; 
and the other half going to the support of our extension work in hitherto neglect- 
ed rural and industrial areas of the Western North Carolina Conference. We 
are pleased to note that gratifying results have attended these efforts. 

We regret that there has been a decided decrease in the amount of Sunday 
School Day offerings received by the Treasurer of our Board during the present 
year. Over half of the Sunday schools of our Conference fail each year to 
observe Sunday School Dav anil to forward any financial returns to our Treas- 
urer. Offerings made were in a number of instances much smaller than usual. Our 
work lias thus been hampered during the past year and jeopardized for the en- 
suing year. 

We have had in the field during the past year four whole-time workers, each 
of whom has given faithful and efficient service, these being O. V. Woosley, 
Conference Superintendent of Sunday school work; Paul F. Evans, Extension 
Secretary; Miss Corinne Little, Elementary Superintendent; L. F. Tuttle, Sup- 
erintendent of Weslev Class work. We regret to report that the Board is unable 
to retain the services of L. F. Tuttle, he having elected to accept a more remun- 
erative opportunity for Christian service elsewhere. The other three workers 
have been re-elected for the ensuing year. 

We wish to recommend that H. G. Hardin be elected a member of the 
Board of Managers of the North Carolina Pastors' School. 

(Signed) D. E. HENDERSON, Chairman, 

GEORGE L. HACKNEY, Secretary. 



EPWORTH LEAGUE BOARD 

Mr. Wesley in laying the foundation of Methodism did not overlook the 
children and young people. And to this dav no man lias ever been admitted into 
our ranks as an itinerant preacher until he has first promised to "diligently and 
earnestly instruct the children." For more than a third of a century "Methodism 
has found the Epworth League to be the best agencv vet devised for giving in 
systematic and constructive fashion this instruction." The report of our General 
Secretary indicates that there has been a substantial growth in Epworth League 
work throughout the Connection. 

The Epworth League's contribution to missions and other benevolences now 
aggregates about #500,000 annually. The contribution in Christian character 
is beyond computation. 

We now have in this Conference 2 3 district and county unions; 20 new 
Senior Chapters and 8 Hi-Leagues have been organized. 

The 16 institutes held during the year have issued 343 units of credit on the 
Christian Culture Diploma. 

In addition to these our Conference Assembly at Junaluska issued 5 20 credits. 

The Epivorth Era ever grows bigger ami better. It is a wonderful periodical 
for the young life of our church and its increasing popularity is shown by the 
fact that it now has a circulation of nearly 50,000 copies per month. 

The Christian Stewardship Campaign should be continued and pushed more 
vigorously than ever before. As an aid in this work it is very important that all 
our Leagues observe the Christian Stewardship Covenant. 

We are pleased to note that a number of Young People's Revivals were held 
last November and December. These evangelistic services were held under the 



64 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

auspices of local Chapter and Epworth League Unions and resulted in great good. 
We recommend that such revival be conducted again this fall wherever practicable. 
We would again call the League's attention to the Missionary Special and would 
insist that it be raised in full. 

The Book-a-Month Club is a forward step and should be extended through- 
out the Conference. The Recreation Leaders' Association also merits the serious 
attention of all our young people. 

Your Board approves the fine work done by our efficient Field Secretary, 
Rev. G. G. Adams, and recommend that he be reappointed to this position. 

Our pastors should not overlook Epworth League Anniversary Day, the fourth 
Sunday in March. This day should be observed in every congregation whether 
there be a local Chapter of the League or not, and an offering should be taken 
and forwarded to Mr. Joe D. Thompson, Treasurer, Mooresville, North Carolina. 

Let the entire Conference give serious and prayerful attention to our young 
people, "that our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our 
daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace."

BOARD OF CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 

The literature produced by the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, is large 
in quantity and high in quality. The total sales of our Publishing House last 
year were $1,966,927.67. On these sales a net profit of $176,818.67 was made. 
Out of this profit $105,000 was appropriated to Conference Claimants. The 
Publishing House distributed more than 35,000,000 copies of its various peri- 
odicals last year and in addition to this, thousands of books were sold. 

We have Sunday school literature unexcelled. The Methodist Quarterly Re- 
view and the Christian Advocate deserve a wider circulation than they now have. 
The Epivorth Era and the Missionary Voice are magazines of unusual excellence. 
Many books coming from the Cokesbury Press are attracting attention outside of 
our own denomination. A few of the most important books recently published 
are: "Prince of the Pulpit and Pastorate," by Dr. H. C. Howard; "Ministerial 
Ethics and Etiquette," by Harmon; "Walking With God," by Harrell ; "Chris- 
tianity's Contribution to Civilization," by Eldridge; "Christ and the New 
Woman," by Chappell; and many others of equal merit. Your Committee calls 
attention, along with these, to Bishop Mouzon's Lyman Beecher lectures delivered 
at Yale last spring and entitled "Preaching With Authority," published by Doran. 

Our Publishing House has recently established the Mail Box Library, which 
makes available a large library of the choicest books for the small membership 
fee of $5.50 per year. This, together with the Missionary Circulating Library 
recently established, ought to make a large contribution to that enrichment 
which comes through the reading of good books. 

The Department of Tracts has prepared for distribution more than 50 tracts, 
which are mailed free to pastors on request, in such quantities as are needed. 
We think a wise use of these tracts will do great good. 

CONFERENCE ACTION REGARDING THE DIAMOND JUBILEE 

We have come to a high hour in the life of our own Nort/i Carolina Christian 
Advocate. Seventy-five years of unbroken service is not to be passed over lightly. 
This is the year of our Diamond Jubilee. We would celebrate in a great way, 
having as our slogan, "The biggest and the best paper in Southern Methodism." 
We therefore recommend that this Conference make the following order: 



Western North Carolina Conference 65 

1. Let the Diamond Jubilee campaign be put on early that all new sub- 
scribers may get the special features of the year. No one will want to miss such 
features as "Romance of American Methodism," by Dr. Garber, or the pictures 
of the preachers who minister to our people. 

2. Let every pastor see that the Advocate is presented in every church so 
that every Methodist may be invited to become acquainted with it. 

3. Let every preacher and layman who has our work at heart join with 
the Advocate office in securing the full quota of names in every pastoral charge 
to go on the Diamond Jubilee Roster. 

4. Let all of our people know that the success of this celebration depends 
upon us. This is our business and we must make it a glorious success. We can, and 
we will. This is the best of all the years for our North Carolina Journalism. 

We recommend that each Presiding Elder at his first district meeting plan 
a united effort for an early campaign in his district. 

This year which brings the Diamond Jubilee of the North Carolina Christian 
Advocate also marks the seventy-fifth year of the history of our Publishing 
House. In view of this joint Diamond Jubilee year your Board requests an hour 
at the 1930 session of our Annual Conference when suitable recognition be given 
these agencies of our church. 

We recommend the election of N. L. Eure to succeed himself as a member 
of the Board of Publication. 

We also recommend Rev. A. W. Plyler for appointment as Editor and 
Assistant Business Manager of the North Carolina Christian Advocate. 

(Signed) L. D. THOMPSON, Chairman, 
OTHO J. JONES, Secretary. 



BOARD OF TEMPERANCE AND SOCIAL SERVICE 

CHURCH SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE 

1. We recommend to pastors the observance of Paragraph No. 5 12 of the 
Discipline which calls for the election of a Committee on Temperance and 
Social Service in each congregation, to be confirmed by the Quarterly Conference: 
and that the Disciplinary instruction be followed by which this Committee shall 
actively advance the interests of Temperance and Social Service in the congrega- 
tion further. 

2. That these Committees undertake such definite projects in community 
welfare as are in harmony with the spirit of Jesus. 

3. That the pastors send the names and addresses of the Chairmen of these 
Committees to the Secretary of the Annual Conference Board of Temperance 
and Social Service (Mrs. W. A. Newell, Greensboro) so that she may send them 
leaflets containing practical suggestions for work. 

TEMPERANCE 

We are aware of a strong and subtle propaganda directed by wet interests 
against prohibition, and we believe it should be counteracted by an equally 
vigorous campaign for the education of children and young people in the 
effects of alcohol on body and mind. We therefore recommend: 

1 . Especial emphasis on the preparation of the Temperance lessons in the 
Sunday school. 

2. Interest on the part of parents in the temperance teaching in the public 
schools required by the state. 

3. That we give our hearty support to the Anti-Saloon League and the 
W. C. T. U., as the two great nation-wide organizations through which our 
people in the churches have co-operated effectively for the overthrow of the 



66 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

legalized liquor traffic and through which we may continue to co-operate ef- 
fectively for the perpetuation of prohibition for the creation and maintenance 
of a proper sentiment for law observance, and law enforcement, and for the 
education of the masses concerning the evils of strong drink. 

WORLD PEACE 

The churches are the greatest force for world peace. We feel sure that the 
mind of the Prince of Peace is expressed in the spirit of the General Treaty for 
the Renunciation of War. We believe that the signing of this Treaty by 46 
nations marks a new era in international relations. This pledge was signed by 
our senate in behalf of the citizens of the United States. It should be understood 
by them as a promise binding every citizen. We, therefore, urge our pastors 
to interpret its significance to their congregations. To this end we commend the 
observance of Armistice Sunday as prepared by the Commission on International 
Justice and Good-will of the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in 
America, a copy of which has been sent to each pastor. 

INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS 

We are deeply impressed with the acute situation in industrial relations, but 
since a commission was elected by our last Annual Conference to study industrial 
relations in this state and since they will bring in a report with definite recom- 
mendations, we are leaving this question with them. 

RACE RELATIONS 

When two races of widely differing history, tradition and characteristics 
dwell side by side, under the same government and economic system, difficulties 
inevitably arise, only to be dispelled by the exercise of justice and mutual for- 
bearance. The relations between the Negro and the white races in North Carolina 
have been remarkably free from friction. This condition has been brought about 
by the efforts of leaders of each race, who have set themselves to achieve oppor- 
tunity for each race to work out its destiny in racial integrity and racial self- 
respect, and yet with such consideration for the other as will avoid conflict and 
produce harmony. 

As an organized body of Christians we owe encouragement to those groups 
that are making conscious effort to bring about this fine understanding, and to 
promote Negro welfare and progress. We are constrained to offer this support 
and fellowship in the name of our Lord, who made brotherhood and respect for 
personality the supreme law of life. 

We therefore recommend: 

1 . That we pledge our co-operation to the North Carolina Commission on 
Inter-Racial Co-operation. 

2. That Dr. Charles C. Weaver, Dr. W. W. Peele, Mr. Charles H. Ireland 
and Mrs. L. E. Brown and the Chairman and Secretary of this Board, ex-officio, 
be designated a Committee on Race Relations of this Annual Conference. 

3. That wherever possible Race Relations Sunday be observed in our 
churches. 

4. That the attention of Ministerial Associations be called to the needs and 
possibilities of inter-racial co-operation in their communities. 

5. That we commend the policy of our church and secular papers in pub- 
lishing constructive material concerning Negro achievement and progress in the 
form of editorials and news items. 

6. That we pledge our co-operation to the General Commission on Inter- 
racial Co-operation in their "Adventure in Good Will."

MRS. W. A. NEWELL, Secretary.

BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES— REPORT NO. 1 

The laymen of the Conference were requested by Bishop E. D. Mouzon to 
formulate a plan for the liquidation of the debt upon the Chapel Hill Church, 
and a special committee of laymen consisting of J. F. Shinn, J. Robert Long 
and H. L. Newbold considered the matter, and prepared the report herein. This 
report was submitted to the Board of Lay Activities and unanimously endorsed 
and recommend that the plan be adopted. 

The report follows: 

"A special committee of laymen from each district of the Western North 
Carolina Conference was called by Bishop Mouzon for the purpose of devising 
ways and means of liquidating the debt on the church at Chapel Hill, this debt 
having been guaranteed by the North Carolina and the Western North Carolina 
Conferences. 

"In this meeting a Committee was appointed to submit a plan to the laymen 
in attendance at this Conference. The Committee recommends the following plan: 

"1. A Committee of three laymen from each of the Conferences to be 
appointed by the Bishop as a general committee to perfect an organization for 
the purpose of liquidating the debt on the church at Chapel Hill, N. C. 

"2. This Committee to be authorized to employ a field man, and to have 
authority to fix salary and expenses. 

"3. The general committee to select a suitable layman from each district, 
who in turn will select an outstanding layman from each pastoral charge, as a 
point of contact for the field man. 

"4. It will be the duty of these Committees to furnish the district chairman 
a list of persons in each pastoral charge who will assist the field secretary in 
raising the necessary funds. 

"5. All moneys collected to be turned over to the Treasurer of the Joint 
Commission, M. E. Hogan, Chapel Hill, N. C, to be kept in a special fund and 
paid out only upon order of this general committee. 

"6. The Treasurer of the Board of Missions of each Conference to be 
authorized to advance as a loan, not to exceed $1,000.00, from each Confer- 
ence, for the purpose of defraying organization expenses; any borrowed money 
to be repaid from the collection by the field secretary. 

"7. This plan is not to vitiate any previous plans, agreements or guarantees 
made by the Conference Boards of the North Carolina and the Western North 
Carolina Conferences." 

(Signed) CHARLES H. IRELAND, Chairman, 
THOMAS C. HOYLE, Secretary. 



Western North Carolina Conference 69 

BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES— REPORT NO. 2 

The future of the church depends upon an intelligent, consecrated body of 
laymen, and in order that it may be obtained, we most earnestly request the 
co-operation of every minister in the Conference, as well as every layman. 

We wish to lay special emphasis on Christian Stewardship and Evangelism. 

We believe that Christian Stewardship should be preached by our pastors, 
that our people should study the best books on the subject, and that our church 
should have a period of intense cultivation of this most important doctrine. 

We recommend that an every-member canvass of our church, for the pastor's 
salary, benevolences, and all other expenses of the church, be made as early in 
November as possible; and in order to facilitate this canvass, this Board will 
furnish free of charge, to any' church applying for same, printed pledge cards. 

We recommend the early payment of the Conference assessments, and suggest 
as a minimum, that at least one-half of these claims on every charge be collected 
before the meeting of the District Conference, and that the remainder be collected 
at least one month before the next Annual Conference. 

We pledge our hearty support to the Presiding Elders and pastors in the 
collection in full of salaries, and of all assessed benevolences. 

The Board of Lay Activities is profoundly interested in Evangelism, and is 
thoroughly committed to the enlisting of all Christian laymen in the work of 
personal evangelism. Ours is a spiritual movement, and its ultimate goal is the 
deepening of the spiritual life of the men of the church. We pledge our hearty 
support to the efforts of our ministry to get back to the principle and practice 
of the early Christian church. 

Sunday, June 8th, 1930, has been designated by the General Board as "Lay- 
man's Day," and we earnestly request that the pastors and lay leaders co-operate 
in planning and conducting lay services that day. 

We wish to express our appreciation of the Methodist Layman, and recom- 
mend the plan suggested by Mr. G. L. Morelock, General Secretary, for in- 
creased subscriptions to that paper. We urgently request each lay leader to 
procure at once not less than thirty-six new subscriptions in his district. 

We nominate Charles H. Ireland as Conference Lay Leader for the coming 
year. 

In conclusion, we would urge upon the pastor and Presiding Elders the im- 
portance of appointing strong men as church and charge lay leaders; no more 
important place is held by any layman, and we respectfully request that the 
strongest and most consecrated laymen in each church or charge be appointed 
lay leaders. 

(Signed) CHARLES H. IRELAND, Chairman, 
THOMAS C. HOYLE, Secretary. 



THE CHILDREN'S HOME 

The Children's Home has had a quiet year, but we think a year of progress. 
For the first time in several years we have no building on hand. This perhaps is 
well enough, inasmuch as there has been some decrease in the income from the 
churches. For the second time our fifth Sunday collection has shown a decided 
falling off. It is too early to say how the payments on the ten per cent will come 
out. Up to this time, however, this fund is considerably behind last year. 

At some expense, we have put in a manual training department, and after 
more than a year's experience we are much pleased with the results. Many 
children who have no taste or aptitude for books take readily to manual train- 
ing. And in some cases the activity of the hands stimulates the mental activities 



70 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

to such an extent that the whole attitude of the child toward an education is 
changed. 

Another effort to improve our service is a case worker. We have employed 
a young woman to investigate all applications from children. Having no other 
duties, she is able to make these investigations promptly and more thoroughly 
than heretofore has been possible. 

She goes more deeply into the conditions of the children for whom applica- 
tions are made, studies the family history, ascertains the causes of the trouble, 
and investigates every possible method of relief. During the year she has been 
able to find places in private homes for more children than she. has recommended 
for admission into our Home. Our usefulness has been very much enlarged by 
the activities of the case worker. Her work puts us in the way of being able 
to help almost every child who applies. We have not quite reached the point 
where we can say we will provide for every child, but we are making sub- 
stantial progress to that end. Heretofore, we have been able to take such as we 
had room for, and assumed no responsibility whatever for the others. 

In many cases the children for whom applications are made have relatives 
able and willing to care for them, but owing to some family misunderstanding 
they are not called upon. The case worker attempts to find every relative and 
tries to awake a sense of responsibility in them, and in most cases succeeds. Often 
there are circumstances and opportunities for these children which require a 
little persevering effort to uncover, but which make it unnecessary to place the 
children in an institution. It is due to facts like these, which the Superintendent, 
for lack of time, has not been able to find out, that has made it possible for 
our visitor to render such a service to the children, and at the same time protect 
the church from a great expense. 

She has also discovered for herself that occasionally there is a mother who 
could keep her family of children together if she had a little larger cash in- 
come. After hearing her report, your Board has authorized the Superintendent 
to spend as much as $100.00 a month in aiding mothers to keep children in 
their own homes. This experiment has been begun so recently and in such a 
small way that we are now unable to make any report of our own experience. 
Many of us know that the Baptist Church has been much pleased with the 
results of this method of aiding needy children. Many also are acquainted with 
the favorable reports which come from the mother's aid work of the state. 

(Signed) T. F. MARR, President. 



HOSPITAL BOARD— REPORT NO. 1 

The Commission appointed by this Conference at its last session has investi- 
gated prospects for the purpose of establishing a hospital within the bounds of 
the Western North Carolina Conference. 

The Duke Foundation offers $35,000 to establish a hospital at Elkin. The 
citizens of Elkin and nearby towns have secured a like amount, making possible 
the erection and equipment of a thirty-five room hospital. 

The Chatham Manufacturing Company has donated a site of fifteen acres 
in a native grove within the corporate limits of the town. 

We, therefore, recommend that this Conference authorize the erection of 
this hospital for which the funds and site have been provided, and that the 
hospital be named : 



Western North Carolina Conference 71 

the hugh chatham memorial hospital 

r We further recommend that the following board of directors be elected: 
/ L. B. Abernethy, Thurmond Chatham, H. K. Boyer, Dr. C. S. Lawrence, R. A. 
Doughton, Dr. J. W. Ring, Alex. Chatham, Dr. James L. Doughton, Mason 
Lillard and John Hanes. 

That this Board of Directors be authorized to receive title to property to 
jhold in trust for the church, and to perform such duties as may be necessary to 
/the erection and maintenance of said hospital, and that they report to the Hospital 
\Board of the Western North Carolina Conference annually, and in connection 
jwith the General Board of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. 

Vacancies occurring on the Board of Directors from any cause shall be filled 
on nomination bv and elected by the Western North Carolina Conference. 

(Signed; H. K. BOYER, Chairman, 
L. W. COLSON, Secretary. 



HOSPITAL BOARD— REPORT NO. 2 

We find these stimulating facts from the General Secretary's annual report: 

Eleven hospitals with 26 buildings on 40 acres of city land; 1,701 hospital 
beds, 32,275 patients, $400,000 free service in 1928, $66,000 being raised by 
Golden Cross; 10 nurses schools, training 690 nurses, $1,500,000 invested in 
1928, $9,500,000 in physical proprety, besides the Duke values. The General 
Hospital Board was organized in 1922, since which time it has received $126,- 
182 from General Conference and spent $116,189, thus leaving a surplus of 
$9,993. 

We request $25 for operating expenses. Golden Cross was represented at 
every District Conference by L. W. Colson in person or proxy, with one un- 
avoidable exception, and he also represented our Conference in General Hospital 
Association. 

We recommend Rev. L. B. Abernethy as Conference Director Golden Cross, 
and Rev. L. W. Colson as Chaplain United States Veterans' Hospital, Oteen, 
North Carolina, and Conference representative in General Hospital Association.

BIBLE BOARD 



The Holy Scriptures have been powerful, under God, in promoting civiliza- 
tion; in stimulating to great achievement; in giving a knowledge of theistic 
correctness; in teaching the fundamental truth concerning God and man in their 
relation to each other and in many other things. We do not believe the Bible 
to be of such a nature that its interpretation should be restricted to a limited 
few. We hold that every one should- know the scriptures and have the right of 
personal interpretation. To this end we have sought to place the Bible or parts 
of the Bible into the homes of the people, in both the homeland and in the 
mission fields where we work. This implies a large amount of work and talent. 
Translations must be made, helps must be prepared, the mechanical work in 
printing and binding must be done. We have found it expedient to use the 
American Bible Society as our agency in doing this important work. For these 
reasons there is in our budget an item for the American Bible Society. 

We urge that our people be made acquainted with what we are doing in 
this important field as well as in the field of Missions, Church Extension and 
other realms of activity. 

(Signed) JOHN W. MOORE, Chairman, 
H. L. POWELL, Secretary. 



72 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

COMMITTEE ON SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE CHURCH 

Whereas, the year 193 will be the nineteenth Centennial of Pentecost: 

Whereas, we believe that the primary function of religion is to impart the 
consciousness of the presence of the living God to men : and, 

Whereas, both the social and the evangelistic functions of our religion are 
dependent upon the genuineness of our spiritual experience: 

Therefore, be it resolved by the Western North Carolina Conference: 

First : That the Bishops be requested to take such steps as, in their wisdom, 
will utilize this historic occasion for the further development of the church's 
sense of the Divine Reality; and of its God-given commission to save the world. 

Second: That the Bishops be requested to invite the co-operation of such 
other religious bodies in this celebration, as in their judgment may seem proper. 

Third: That as a Conference we commit ourselves, beginning now, to the 
spirit and principles of this triumphant era of our glorious gospel. 

Fourth: That Bishop Edwin D. Mouzon be requested to call the ministers 
and laymen of the Western North Carolina Conference together at such time 
and place as he may deem advisable for meditation, prayer and testimony in 
order to prepare our leadership for the most fruitful observance possible of this 
occasion for the local church. 

Fifth: That a copy of this resolution be sent to those Annual Conferences 
of our Connection yet to convene prior to the fall meeting of the Bishops. 

(Signed) W. W. PEELE, Chairman, 

H. B. TRIMBLE, Secretary. 



SABBATH OBSERVANCE 

We are deeply conscious of the growing laxity in the observance of the 
Christian Sabbath. We recognize the distinction in origin and purpose between 
the ancient Jewish Sabbath and the modern Christian Sabbath. If a Sabbath 
grounded in law was necessary for the molding of a righteous people from a 
primitive race, how much more is a Sabbath transcending that law necessary for 
the perfecting of a holy people from a race tutored in modern Christian enlight- 
enment. The Lord's Day is no less important to our spiritual needs today than 
the legal Sabbath was to man's needs two thousand years ago. The observance 
of it serves as a spiritual tonic to our religious life. We, therefore, deplore its 
desecration as a death-blow at a divine institution. Its observance affects the 
very foundation of our civilization and determines the character of our peace 
and prosperity. Men are menacing its security and perpetuity by digging away 
at its foundation. The church itself oftentimes seems unmindful of the damaging 
action, even within its own confines, against the holiness of this day. There are 
today violations of the commandment of God given to man to help him to find 
life at its best, and these violations are contrary to Christian conscience and to 
the faith of our fathers, who truly found life at its best in its observance. Now 
we fully recognize that there is a superiority of Christian conscience over ritual- 
ism or Pharisaical observance. Individuals differ in their conception of the day 
and in their interpretation of its significance in moral conduct and religious 
experience. They must, therefore, regulate or modify their observance of it in 
the light of its meaning to them. Again, we recognize the truth that man was not 
made for the Sabbath, but the Sabbath for man. We believe that the richest 
blessings that this day can bring to man will come, and come only, to those who 
observe it in the spirit of the Master, who was Lord even of the Sabbath. 

To save this divine institution, which is recognized as one of the pillars of 
our civilization and which is being undermined by modern abuses, we submit to 



Western North Carolina Conference 73 

this Conference for adoption the following recommendations, believing that 
delay will tend to increase the menace our church now faces rather than diminish 
it: 

First. That we in our Christian practice be more careful to remember this 
holy day. 

Second. That we in our Christian pulpits impress the importance of a holy 
observance of this day upon our members, seeking to teach them to observe all 
things which Christ commanded. 

Third. That we in our Christian press do all possible to create a conscience 
for a more faithful observance of the Lord's Day in the spirit of Christ, seeking 
thereby blessings for ourselves and glory to our God. 

(Signed) O. P. ADER, Chairman, 
W. E. BIRD, Secretary. 



JOINT COMMISSION 

The Joint Commission of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and the 
Methodist Protestant Church of North Carolina, submits the following report: 

1. We are glad to note that the sending of Fraternal Messengers from the 
Conferences of one denomination to those of the other has brought about a better 
understanding between the denominations, and has also aided in creating a 
closer Christian fellowship. So far, so good. But your Committee feels that the 
time has come when these two denominations operating in the same territory, 
fighting a common foe, and striving in the same way to build up the Kingdom 
of Jesus Christ in North Carolina, should begin a closer and more active co- 
operation in a few communities in this state. This, we believe, can be done to 
the glory of God and to the advancement of His Kingdom. 

After careful consideration at two meetings of this Joint Commission, it was 
agreed to recommend to our respective Conferences the elimination of one 
Methodist group in communities where each of the churches represented on this 
Commission has a small following, and where neither can have satisfactory 
growth. If this plan should not be acceptable, then we recommend a co-operative 
effort in keeping with the plan proposed a year ago. 

The plan of this elimination is for one group to join the other, and the 
church thus demembered to be closed and the property disposed of in harmony 
with the law of the church involved. 

We, furthermore, recommend that this plan be tried out in two communities 
where similar conditions maintain, and that this Commission, together with the 
Presiding Elder involved and the President of the Methodist Protestant Confer- 
ence, be authorized to choose these communities, and to put the plan into opera- 
tion. 

We, also, recommend that with the approval of this plan by the Conference, 
the Commission proceed in the communities selected to make effective the plan 
proposed. 

The Commission understands, of course, that full co-operation is hardly to 
be expected in the local churches where the plan may be tried. There will be 
those with strong local and denominational attachments, who, perhaps, will not 
be able to adjust themselves to this new order. The Commission understands, too, 
that church membership is not a matter in which coercion can or should be used. 
Each individual has a right to settle this for himself. If some prefer to go into 
other Methodist Churches in other communities, they would have that privilege. 
Others, perhaps, would elect to join the churches of other denominations; they 
would be perfectly free to follow that course. However, it is our hope that the 
majority of our members would join the merger. Though, in any event, it is 



74 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

our opinion that we would be better off in the end with only one Methodist 
Church in these communities than we are or can be under the present conditions. 

The Commission proposed a fair, anil equitable, and Christian adjustment 
between the two denominations in working out this scheme. If the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, yields the territory in one community the Methodist 
Protestant Church will give way in another community of equal strength and 
opportunity. There will be no scheming for advantage. The aim will be to 
promote the interest of each church; and above all, the progress of the Kingdom. 

In this spirit, and as the result of our deliberations and best judgment, and 
in obedience to what we understand to be the purpose of this Commission, we 
submit this proposal to our respective Conferences for their deliberation, and 
we do it with the earnest prayer that their conclusions may be in harmony with 
the spirit and purpose and glory of Him who is the great Head of the Church. 

2. We commend most heartily the effort to wisely consolidate rural churches 
where it can be done to the advantage of Kingdom interests. 

3. Following the agreement of a year ago, that the term of office of two 
members of the Joint Commission, representing each of the two denominations 
should expire each year, C. B. Culbreth and J. F. Kirk were nominated by the 
group of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, for the election by their 
Conferences, respectively, the North Carolina Conference and the Western North 
Carolina Conference. The matter of electing two members by the Methodist 
Protestant Conference was referred to the Nominating Committee of that 
Conference.

MANAGERS OF PASTORS' SCHOOL 

Your Board of Managers is pleased to report that the Pastors' School at 
Duke University the past summer was up to its high standard of service to the 
pastors and laity of the church. 

We desire to call attention to the changes made at the 1929 session of the 
school in regard to the opening date and duration of the Pastors' School for 
the coming 193 session. The school will open June 10th and will continue for 
ten days through June 20th. We believe this will allow more pastors to attend 
the school and will work for the accommodation and convenience of all con- 
cerned. 

The Dean, Prof. J. M. Ormond, submits the following statistical report:

DUKE FUND COMMISSION 

We are pleased to report that the plan of sending out student assistants to 
serve ten or twelve weeks on country circuits was continued this past summer 
with gratifying results. There were thirty-nine circuit pastors in the two North 
Carolina Conferences who were able to use one of the young preachers in their 
work. We would urge all pastors who desire assistants for the summer of 1930 
to apply to Prof. J. M. Ormond immediately after Conference when plans 
have materialized for the year's work. 

We take pleasure in announcing that the Board of Church Extension in 
Louisville has placed an architect at Duke University to co-operate with Duke 
University and The Duke Endowment in the building of country churches. He 
will be available not only for providing plans and supervision for country 
churches, but his services may be had by any congregation that is planning to 
build a church. 

Those on the Commission whose terms expire this year are : 

North Carolina Conference: M. T. Plyler. 

Western North Carolina Conference: R. M. Courtney.

METHODIST MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY 

Pursuant to authority given by this Conference at its session last year, your 
Directors re-insured all of our policies in strong Mutual Insurance Companies 
through the Mutual Insurance Agency of Greensboro. This was done without 
loss to the Methodist Mutual Insurance Company or to its guarantors. 

We commend the liberal policy of the Mutual Insurance Agency and thank 
the Manager, Mr. R. T. Settle, for his assistance in winding up the affairs of 
our Company so successfully.

W. A. NEWELL, Secretary. 



DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORDS 

Your Committee to examine District Conference Records had the Records 
from the following districts: Asheville, Charlotte, Gastonia, Marion, Mount Airy, 
Salisbury, Waynesville and Winston-Salem. 

We found the record for the Asheville District a model of neatness and a 
work of art. Rev. W. F. Sandford, the efficient and painstaking Secretary, 
deserves the highest commendation for the way he has preserved these records. 

The record for the Charlotte District has typewritten sheets pasted to the 
leaves of the book. With this exception the record is well kept. 

The record for the Gastonia District was found to be in good shape. 

The record for the Marion District was in splendid condition. 

The Mount Airy District record was well kept with the exception of some 
ink stains on the paper. 

The Salisbury record was efficiently kept. 

The Waynesville record was in good form. 

The Winston-Salem record was in splendid condition. 

The records for the Greensboro and Statesville Districts were not in our 
hands for examination.

H. L. POWELL, Secretary. 



76 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

CHURCH PROPERTY 

We are under a sacred obligation to care well for the house of God and all 
other property consecrated to the service of the Master. With the passing of the 
years much improvement has been made in church buildings and grounds, and 
increased interest has been manifested in the care of all church property. But 
we should continue to go forward in this work. The church should be just as 
beautiful and just as well kept as the very best home in the community. We still 
see, especially in the rural sections, many church buildings sadly in need of paint, 
window panes, recovering and other repairs, and proper lighting systems. We 
see church yards washed into series of gullies or «rown up with weeds and 
sprouts, and we see church cemeteries overgrown with weeds and briars. Inside 
the church we see dirty, uncarpeted aisles, a few wornout hymn books scattered 
here and there on the seats, and Sunday school magazines piled on a front 
bench or on the chancel floor. We desire to repeat with emphasis that these 
church properties are sacred possessions and should be reverently and systemati- 
cally cared for. 

We recommend that all our church buildings be kept in good repair and 
well painted, with window panes complete, aisles, chancels, and pulpits carpeted; 
neat bookcases for the Sunday school supplies; good lights, kept clean and in 
working order; and adequate heating plants. 

We recommend that our church grounds be kept neat, not just once or twice 
a year, but all through the year, that walks be conveniently arranged and kept 
clean, that parking spaces for cars be set apart and used by the car-owners, and 
that evergreens and flowers be planted in' intelligent order for beautification. 

We recommend that our church cemeteries be kept clean, with graves syste- 
matically arranged as far as possible and carefully marked, and with walk-ways 
intersecting the cemeteries in a convenient system. 

We recommend that each of our congregations provide in the front yard of 
the church a bulletin board containing the name of the church, the times for 
services, etc. 

We recommend that all our churches keep a sufficient number of our own 
Methodist song books, in good condition, to supply the entire congregations at 
our services, and that book racks be placed on the backs of the pews to preserve 
the books and keep them conveniently distributed throughout the church. 

Since what is everybody's business is nobody's business, we suggest and rec- 
ommend for the carrying into effect of our preceding recommendations that 
each church employ a janitor or caretaker, whose duties shall be to care for 
the church building and grounds as we have herein before recommended. We 
recommend that an annual church upkeep fund be raised and expended for this 
purpose. Where the church trustees will not attend to this work we recommend 
that a church property committee consisting of both women and men be ap- 
pointed by the pastor to raise and administer this fund. 

We further recommend that when a new church is planned, or an old one 
remodeled, the building committee consult and co-operate with the Department 
of Architecture of our General Board of Church Extension, Louisville, Ky., or 
Duke University, and also that wherever feasible consolidation of churches be 
effected. 

We desire to call attention to the matter of insurance. According to the last 
Annual Conference Journal there are 8 74 church buildings and 252 parsonages 
with a combined value of $14,074,262, but only $4,061,953 of insurance is 
carried on this property, a little less than one-third of the value of the property. 
We recommend that all our churches and parsonages be insured for at least three- 
fourths of their value. 



Western North Carolina Conference 77 

It has been the experience of all church historians that church records extend- 
ing back any considerable distance into the past are very difficult to locate. 
There seems to be no definite place designated by the Discipline for the preserv- 
ing of church record books. We, therefore, recommend finally, that all church 
records, including records of church Conferences, Quarterly Conferences, and 
church rolls, when they are ready to be stored for preservation and future 
reference, be kept in the parsonages of the several charges, that all district 
records of whatever nature be kept in the several district parsonages.

J. P. MORRIS, Secretary. 



COMMITTEE ON SOUTHERN ASSEMBLY 

The Western North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, has received with interest the proposal of the stockholders and commis- 
sioners of the Southern Assembly to convey the ownership and administration of 
the Assembly to a Board of Trustees to be elected by Annual Conferences east 
of the Mississippi River. 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED : First, That the Western North Carolina 
Conference accept said proposition and will co-operate in the proposed plan on 
the basis set forth. 

Second, That this Conference endorses and commends to our people an appeal 
for voluntary contributions for the enlargement and better equipment of the 
Assembly that it may serve the interests of the church in the most efficient way. 

Third, That this Conference does not assume any liability for any financial 
obligations of the Southern Assembly, nor is said Conference either financially 
or morally obligated for any present or future indebtedness of the said Assembly. 
We hope and believe that it will be amply sustained by the thousands who shall 
benefit by it and by those who habitually support the great and worthy institu- 
tions of our church. 

Fourth, That the Board of Trustees created by this Conference, in co-opera- 
tion with other Annual Conferences, is hereby authorized and empowered to 
secure incorporation under the laws of the State of North Carolina whenever 
in its discretion incorporation may be necessary or desirable for the better dis- 
charge of its trust. 

Fifth, That Rev. A. W. Plyler be, elected a Trustee of the Southern Assembly, 
to serve one year, and that Mr. E. A. Cole be elected to serve as Trustee for 
two years, and as their terms expire one Trustee shall be elected for a term of 
two years at each session of this Conference hereafter. 

Sixth, That the Board of Trustees shall submit annually to each of the 
co-operating Conferences a full report of the condition and operations of the 
Southern Assembly together with such recommendations as the Board may deem 
advisable. 

Seventh, That the above acceptance on the part of the Western North Carolina 
Conference shall not be effective until at least nine other Annual Conferences 
east of the Mississippi River have accepted this proposal on similar terms.

78 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

COMMITTEE ON INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS 

Your Commission has been hindered in its work of investigation by constant 
agitation and resulting- economic distress in our industrial life. Disorder, killings, 
violence, and mob action have disgraced our citizenship. Our church deplores 
this situation ; feels a keen responsibility in these things, and is eager to assume 
her share in remedying these evils. 

For many years our church has been a member of the Federal Council of 
the Churches of Christ in America, and our Conference has, each year, for a 
long while voted complete adherence to this social creed. Our General Conference 
lias adopted the creed ami it is now a part of our Discipline. (See Discipline, 
Paragraph 5 13). 

We delight in co-operating with the Christian forces in seeking a better social 
order. 

At our last session, through the adoption of the report of the Board of 
Temperance and Social Service, the Conference took the following action: 
"Our Conference territory is rapidly becoming one of the great 
industrial areas of this continent. This evolution from a rural section 
into factory and urban centers, with the attended shifting of population 
will open to us possibilities for marvelous expansion and entail ines- 
capable responsibilities. We must develop all existing fields as they are 
established, and seek a broader understanding of Methodism's relation 
to economic needs. 

"We rejoice in the homogenous character of our population. This 
common origin of employer and employee is the basis of our progress 
and to it is due the fine understanding which exists between capital and 
labor in this state and we hope that in the expansion of our industries 
there may be no importation of ideals or policies alien to this fine 
Southern tradition. 

"For the benefit of all who toil, for the preservation of the home, 
for the improvement of the product, and for the stabilization of industry 
we urge both employer and employee to join with us in urging the 
gradual and complete elimination of night work for women and 
adolescents ami we seek the co-operation of all lovers of humanity in 
securing wise and conservative legislative enactment for accomplishing 
this purpose." 

The following action was taken through the adoption of the report of the 
Board of Missions: 

In view of the increasing industrialization of our Conference terri- 
tory and the new problems which necessarily arise thereby, your Board 
wishes to go on record as having a sympathetic interest in every phase 
of the social, economic and moral problems connected with this work. 
And in order that we may be able to act with knowledge and efficiency 
in this field, the following have been selected as a committee to study 
the industrial situation and make report with a view to arriving at a 
sane, helpful and Christian plan of work: R. M. Courtney, J. F. Shinn 
and W. A. Newell. 

Since that time profound disturbances have been felt in our textile industry. 
Twenty per centum of our charges are composed of textile workers, and those 
related to the industry. Seventy-five per centum of these receive aid from the 
Board of Missions. It is a field of prime importance in our development. We 
desire to present certain facts for your consideration. 

First. The textile industry is a "sick industry." This is revealed in current 
price quotations on standard mill stocks. These quotations show a net decline of 



Western North Carolina Conference 79 

more than SO per cent in average price within the last nine years. This decline 
continues. The oft cited "huge dividends" do not exist and are useful for 
propaganda only. Very few mills have made more than a reasonable return 
upon the investment. While it is probable that more than half of them have 
made nothing in this period of readjustment. 

Second. A definition of the Minimum Standard of living has been stated 
as follows: 

"The minimum normal standard of living must furnish every- 
thing necessary for a manner of living that will make possible a high 
standard of physical, mental, and moral health and efficiency for adults, 
the full physical and mental growth and development of children, and 
provision for their moral welfare." 

"At present cotton mills can not pay a wage scale sufficiently large 
to secure this standard. The wage scale in North Carolina is decidedly 
higher than in the states south of us which are engaged in this industry. 
The industry is highly competitive and is now suffering from over 
expansion. But this living wage should be paid the workers and the 
cost added to the price of the product. This can be worked out in such 
a way as to secure this living wage for the worker, a just return for 
capital and a fair price for the consumer." 

Third. No hope of relief is to be found in wage cuts, stretch-out system, 
extension of hours of labor, shut-outs, or other forms of economy which lay 
additional burdens or privations upon the workers. On the other hand, strikes, 
sabotage, restricted production and similar action by the workers can only add 
to the general distress; these expedients belong to economic warfare but long 
and costly experience has taught us that conference, understanding and co- 
operation of Christian brotherhood should prevail in industrial as well as in all 
other human relations. 

Fourth. We beg both employers and employees to, in the Spirit 'of Christ, 
join hands, minds, and hearts in securing a better industrial order, whereby all 
shall prosper. We pledge to them our hearty good will and brotherly co-opera- 
tion in every effort for improvement and assure them of our sympathy in this 
time of stress and trial. 

Fifth. We urge our senators and representatives in the Congress of the 
United States to secure the creation of a permanent, non-partisan, non-political 
commission for the proper study of all related problems and that the report of 
such commission be made as a whole, covering the entire textile industry so that 
wise changes may be made in our laws relating to the industry. It is a national 
industry and is worthy of national study. 

Sixth. We rejoice in the reduction of hours of labor in this industry and 
pray for the further reduction of night work for women and children. The 
gradual elimination of night work for all is an ideal toward which we strive. 

Seventh. Our church should seek to render a larger service in this field. 
Our methods do not seem so successful as we should desire. It would greatly 
benefit the entire industry if the manufacturers would assume a larger share in 
the support of existing churches in their respective areas. Surely capital should 
bear at least one-half the burden of maintaining religious worship in mill 
communities. It may be possible that it would be wise for us to conduct a 
Sunday school in every village where the disciplinary requirements can be met. 
We find that the people in a mill group prefer to attend church in the mill 
village. 

Eighth. We recommend that a conference of all pastors who labor in 
textile centers be called at an early date for further consideration of the prob- 
lems involved. 



80 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

Ninth. Since Duke University is becoming' the great seat of ministerial 
training, and, since so many of these ministers will eventually be called upon 
to serve industrial congregations, we should be pleased to have established there 
a chair of Industrial Relations for the training of our future ministers in these 
great problems.

HISTORICAL SOCIETY MINUTES 

The annual meeting of the Historical Society of the Western North Carolina 
Conference was held in Wesley Memorial Church, High Point, North Carolina, 
at 7:30 p. m., Tuesday, October the 22nd, 1929. W. E. Poovey, President, was 
in the chair. 

The opening devotional service consisted of the singing of Hymn 415, 
"Faith of Our Fathers," prayer offered by J. O. Ervin, and the singing of 
Hymn 180, "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name." 

The minutes of the session of 1928 at First Methodist Church, Charlotte, 
North Carolina, were read by the Secretary and approved. 

A nominating committee consisting of J. P. Hipps, T. C. Jordan and W. L. 
Sherrill was appointed by the chair. 

A collection to meet the expenses of the Society was taken, and $34.17 was 
contributed. This sum was paid to the North Carolina Christian Advocate on 
account for printing. 

The Committee on Nominations made its report, recommending for President, 
R. M. Courtney; Vice-President, Dr. Dred Peacock; Secretary-Treasurer, W. G. 
McFarland; member Executive Committee succeeding himself, C. M. Pickens; 
and they were elected.

Society in our program of work and introduced the speaker of the evening, Dr. 
Dred Peacock of High Point. Dr. Peacock delivered an excellent address, the 
subject being "The History of Trinity College Since 18 82." Afterwards a rising 
vote of thanks was tendered Dr. Peacock by the Society and congregation in 
appreciation of this interesting and instructive address. 

The closing prayer was led by Dr. W. P. Few, President of Duke University.

W. G. McFARLAND, Secretary. 



THE CONFERENCE BROTHERHOOD 

The Western North Carolina Conference Brotherhood met in twenty-first 
annual session in Wesley Memorial Methodist Church, High Point, N. C, at 
2 o'clock p. m., October 26, 1929, W. L. Sherrill, President, in the chair. 
After devotional services, conducted by W. R. Ware, minutes of the last session 
were read and approved. The report of the Secretary-Treasurer showed that 



82 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

five members of the Brotherhood had died during the year, namely: S. T. Barber, 
L. H. Griffith, R. M. Hoyle, E. R. Welch and W. F~. Womble. The report also 
showed that $1,S00.00 had been paid on each of the five claims except that of 
R. M. Hovle, on which had been paid $800.00, leaving a balance yet due on 
that claim of $1,000.00. Amount in banks on this date, $+,146.00. All of which 
showed the Brotherhood to be in excellent condition, and rendering fine service. 

The following resolution was presented by E. M. Jones: 

"Be it resolved and passed that if any preacher does not join the Brotherhood 
the year he is admitted into full connection into the Conference, or prior thereto, 
he shall be required, when he does join, to pay all dues back to the date he was 
admitted into full connection." 

The action on this resolution was favorable, but as it is an amendment to 
the constitution, it is required that it be published in the North Carolina Christian 
Advocate three weeks before the next annual session of the Brotherhood and 
may then be finally acted upon at that annual session. 

Officers were elected as follows: President, W. L. Sherrill; Vice-President, 
W. R. Ware; Secretary-Treasurer, C. M. Pickens. G. D. Herman and W. L. 
Dawson were appointed by the chair as members of the Executive Committee. 

Adjourned with benediction by W. L. Dawson.

C. M. PICKENS, Secretary and Treasurer.

Memoirs 



REV. SAMUEL TURNER BARBER 

The tribute that one is faithful to duty merits the prime eulogy of Him who 
declared: "Ye are my disciples if ye do whatsoever I command you." The life 
of Samuel Turner Barber was a true exponent of fidelity to duty in the varied 
spheres of life and conduct. 

With courage was blended gentleness; with zeal was united patience; with 
positive conviction was cherished the charity which never faileth. 

Brother Barber's ministry was constructive. He became noted as a church 
builder, beginning from his early ministry. Having a trained mind, he prepared 
well his sermons; and being endowed with evangelistic talent, he was efficient 
in revival work. During his membership of thirty-seven years in the Western 
North Carolina Conference he wrought faithfully, and the fruitage of his labors 
will abide as imperishable blessings in promoting the Kingdom of Christ. 

In paying a worthy tribute to his memory Rev. James B. Craven, his presiding 
elder, stated that no other interpretation of the life of Samuel T. Barber could 
be made than that based upon assurance of immortality. With such sacrificial 
devotion to heroic service he had the spiritual vision as "seeing Him who is 
invisible." 

From an article which Rev. J. B. Craven furnished the North Carolina 
Christian Advocate the following extract is quoted: "Brother Barber labored 
well. As a preacher, pastor, leader in church building enterprises, an advocate 
of more efficient work in Sunday school, he pressed forward with a persistency 
and determination which brought results. He gave himself without stint to the 
ministry of the church and has entered into the reward of the faithful." 

Samuel Turner Barber, son of William Zachariah and Sarah Waters Barber, 
was born in Rockingham County, N. C, April 17, 1868. He was graduated 
from Trinity College in the class of 1892, and in the fall of that year he was 
admitted on trial into the Western North Carolina Conference. His appointments 
were as follows: Jamestown Circuit, 1893-94; Pleasant Garden, 1895-98; Old 
Fort, 1899; Lowell, 1900-01; Walkertown Station, 1902-03; Linwood Circuit, 
1904-05; Henrietta-Caroleen, 1906; Mooresville, 1907-08; Mt. Zion, 1909; 
East Greensboro, 1910-11; Asheboro, 1912; Matthews, 1913; Andrews, 1914-15; 
West Asheville, 1916-17; Morven, 1918-19; West View, Hickory, 1920; Main 
Street, High Point, 1921; Conference Evangelist, 1922-23; Denton, 1924-25; 
Randleman, 1926; Coleridge, 1927-28; Glenwood, Greensboro, 1929. 

On June 29, 1892, he was united in marriage to Miss Annie Palmer of 
Rockingham County. Surviving are the wife, two sons and two daughters. 

His last sermon at Glenwood Church, Greensboro, was delivered about one 
week before his going to the hospital. His text was: "But they that wait upon 
the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; 
they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." — Isaiah 
40:31. In this valedictory message he preached with unusual fervor, and seemed 
to speak out of an experience of triumph through sustaining grace. 

For some time before his departure he gave evidence of being aware of his 
physical condition, was calm in reference to the matter, and spoke with the 
assurance of faith. During this period he would engage in reminiscence including 
his former experience in the hospital elsewhere when he was instrumental in 
leading two patients to Christ, stating the opportunity a hospital has in doing 
spiritual good. 



Western North Carolina Conference 145 

He returned home from a local hospital only two days before his passing. 
During this time he was preparing to conduct his prayer meeting, Wednesday 
evening. On that Wednesday morning, February 6, 1929, the end came suddenly 
and without suffering, when he was translated from his earthly home to "a build- 
ing of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." 

The funeral service was held in Glenwood Church at 11 a. m. on Friday, 
February 8, being conducted by J. B. Craven, assisted by J. H. Armbrust, L. D. 
Thompson and S. B. Turrentine. Interment was in Green Hill Cemetery, Greens- 
boro. S. B. TURRENTINE. 



REV. LINWOOD HIGGINS GRIFFITH 

Rev. Linwood Higgins Griffith, son of John O. and his wife, Sarah Griffith, 
was born April 27th, 1873, and died June 12th, 1929. On the 16th of October, 
1892, he was happily married to Miss Lillie Josephine Brinkley of Yancey County. 
To this happy union seven children were given, four sons and three daughters, 
all of whom with their mother remain on this side of the River. 

Brother Griffith was born and reared in Yancey County. There among the 
mountains, hills and the fine people of that great section of country he grew and 
gathered the strength of body and mind, and the deep spiritual power of soul 
that helped to make him the excellent man he was as a worker and minister in 
Christ's kingdom on earth. He descended from a people who were strong Metho- 
dists, who loved the Methodist Church and believed its doctrines. Growing up 
in the midst of such a wholesome Christian atmosphere he naturally gave his heart 
and life to Christ early in young manhood. He joined the Methodist Church and 
was ever afterwards deeply devoted to his church and its work. He attended the 
best schools of his county and was during his life a student. 

While a young man Brother Griffith felt the call to preach and finally yielded 
his life to the work of the ministry. He was for awhile active as a local minister 
and served in the Conference as a supply. His work was so fruitful and gave 
such evidences of the stamp of God's approval that he was led to apply for 
admission into the Western North Carolina Conference, and was admitted in 
1910 at Winston-Salem. During his work in the Conference he served very 
successfully the following charges: Ball Creek Circuit, 1905-09; Mars Hill, 
1909-13; Bethel, 1913-14; Jonathan Circuit, 1914-18; Polkton, 1918-22; Thrift- 
Moores, 1922-23; Albemarle Circuit, 1923-26; Bethel-New Hope Circuit, 
1926-29. In every charge where he served he was greatly loved by his people. 
They loved him and believed in him because he was a man of God. He won 
the confidence of children and young people, and they seemed glad to follow 
in the way he was leading. As a result of this fine leadership the charges he 
served were greatly strengthened. 

Brother Griffith's faith in his Lord was strong and steadfast, even unto the 
end. He seemed to believe the word of God fully. Just a few days before his 
going the writer of this sketch heard him give a funeral talk in which he 
expressed his faith in the future life, and the Heavenly Home of the soul, in 
utterances which were profound. He loved the great and beautiful things of 
nature and was a close student of the world about him. He often found there 
much excellent material which he built into some of his best sermons. He greatly 
loved the people of the rural sections and through his splendid preaching won 
many of them for Christ and to a life of service in His kingdom. 

On June 12th, while working in his garden, he was stricken with that 
dreaded disease known as apoplexy, and a few minutes after reaching his home 
he became speechless and unconscious and soon slipped away from earth and 
loved ones to rest in that beautiful land of unclouded day.

146 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

REV. ROBERT M. HOYLE 

Robert McNeely Hoyle was born February 26, 1850, and departed from 
this life June 30, 1929. He was 79 years, four months and four days old when 
he died. He was the son of John and Mary (McNeely) Hoyle of Cleveland 
County. 

He was united in marriage to Miss Rebecca Wilson in 1873 and to this 
happy union were born four children. Two of his children preceded him in 
death, and he is now survived by his widow and two children. His son, Caleb, 
of Shelby, and his daughter, Mrs. Lucy Wells, of Middleburg, N. C. 

He was converted in 1865 and joined Big Hill Methodist Church in Cleve- 
land County. He was licensed to preach in 1870, having received his local 
license at Palm Tree Church under Dr. Hudson. He attended the public schools 
in his home neighborhood, and received his training for the ministry at Ruther- 
ford College under the direction of the late Dr. R. L. Abernethy. He was always 
a friend to this great old institution and for many years served as one of the 
trustees. He made many sacrifices for Rutherford College and was always 
interested in her progress. In his death the school has sustained the loss of one 
of its best friends and most ardent supporters. 

He was admitted into the North Carolina Conference on trial at Durham, 
N. C, November 24, 1881, and served on the following charges during his long 
and fruitful life. His first appointment was Columbus Mission, 1882; Cherry 
Mountain, 18 83; and in this year he was ordained as deacon by Bishop Keener. 
His third charge was the South Fork Circuit, and he served there for three years, 
18 84-85-86. In 18 85 he was ordained as elder by Bishop Keener. His ministerial 
record from his ordination is: Davidson Circuit, 1887-88; Forest Hill, Concord, 
1889; Mount Airy District, 1890-93; Central, Monroe, 1894; Morganton Dis- 
trict, 1895-96; Statesville Station, 1897; Shelby District, 1898-99; Forest Hill, 
Concord, 1900; Polkville Circuit, 1901; Palm Tree and Lawndale, 1902; 
Waynesville District, 190 3-04. (In 1904 he entered upon his second year as 
presiding elder of the Waynesville District and about a month after Conference 
an exchange was made by which Rev. C. F. Sherrill was transferred to the 
Waynesville District and Brother Hoyle took Brother Sherrill's place at Central 
Church, Shelby, for the remainder of the year). Shelby District, 1905-0 8; Mor- 
ganton District, 1909-12. In 1913 he took the supernumerary relation with the 
expectation of getting some much needed rest, but about the middle of the year 
Dr. S. B. Turrentine, who was presiding elder of the Shelby District, was elected 
president of Greensboro College, and Brother Hoyle was appointed by Bishop 
McCoy to fill out the year as presiding elder of the Shelby District; Mount 
Airy District, 1914; Mocksville Station, 1915-16; Kings Mountain, 1917; 
Newton, 1918-19. In 1920 and 1921, superannuated. Then to Kings Mountain, 
1922-24; Belmont, Main Street, 1925-26. He was superannuated in 1927 and 
remained in this connection until his death. He gave 44 years of his life in 
active service in the ministry and eternity alone will reveal all that was accom- 
plished in that time. 

Brother Hoyle had a rich religious experience and was an ardent contender 
for the great doctrines of Regeneration and the Witness of the Spirit. He had a 
keen mind and a warm heart. He was one of the greatest Bible scholars that it 
has ever been my privilege to meet. He knew what the Bible taught, and he also 
had the ability of getting other people to understand the truths that he wanted 
to bring in his messages. He had the apostolic spirit, and was a worthy follower 
of the great Founder of our church. He grew up in the days when people knew 
what real hardship was and he had within him the true fiber and character of 
the soldier. He was truly a hero of the Cross. He was dauntless in his convictions, 
and aggressive in spirit. He was one of the best known men in our conference, 
and was greatly admired by all who knew him. He was a true shepherd of the 



Western North Carolina Conference 147 

flock over which he was appointed and was loved by the people that he served. 
Truly it can be said that a prince in Israel has fallen; but we all know where 
to look for him. I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Write, blessed are the dead 
which die in the Lord, that they may rest from their labors, and their works do 
follow them." Many shall stand at the last day and answer, "Saved by Jesus' 
blood"; and he shall rejoice in the knowledge that he was instrumental in lead- 
ing them to Christ. 

The last few months of his life were spent in the most intense pain and 
suffering; but he bore it with the courage of a soldier and the patience of a 
saint. He affirmed over and over again his strong faith in God, and gave every 
assurance of being ready to depart and be with Jesus when the summons came. 
In fact it seemed that his greatest desire was to depart and be with Jesus. Truly 
he passed through the fires of afflictions without the smell of fire upon his gar- 
ments, and the pure gold of his character shone with a greater luster and splendor 
during these hours than ever before. In the hours of darkness his spiritual sight 
became keener until he pierced the vail and saw things that only God's chosen 
ones are permitted to see before the crossing. Those who had the privilege of 
being with him in these last days have a stronger faith by having heard his 
clear ringing testimony to the realities of the world beyond. God sat as the 
refiner of silver, and when he saw his own image reflected in this life, which had 
stood the test of every fire, he said it is enough and the fire was withdrawn and 
a pure soul went home to be with God where it will shine throughout eternity. 

The funeral service was held at Central Methodist Church at Kings Moun- 
follow them." Many shall stand at the last day and answer, "Saved by Jesus' 
tain. The writer was assisted in the services by Revs. W. R. Ware, W. A. Newell, 
H. K. Boyer, E. K. McLarty and A. C. Swafford. Many other ministers were 
present for the service. The body was laid to rest in the Mountain Rest Cemetery 
of Kings Mountain. J. R. CHURCH. 



REV. EDWIN RUSKIN WELCH 



Edwin Ruskin Welch, son of Henry and Mary Ellen Welch, was born at 
Clio, S. C, March 3 1, 18 74, and died at the French Broad Hospital, Asheville, 
February 21, 1929, after an illness of about ten days. 

The Welch family moved to Red Springs, N. C, when Edwin was ten years 
old, and it was here that he spent the formative years of youth. He was educated 
at Trinity College, now Duke University, graduating with the class of 1899, 
and joined the North Carolina Conference at Washington, and was appointed 
to Richlands Circuit. 

On January 30, 1900, he was married to Miss Lula King of Wilmington, 
N. C, and to them were born two children, Joseph Hodges, deceased, and 
Elizabeth, now at the head of the Latin department of the Biltmore High School. 

He remained a member of the North Carolina Conference for eleven years, 
his last charge in that Conference being Trinity Church in Wilmington, when 
in 1910 he was transferred to West Oklahoma Conference and was stationed at 
Lindsey, Oklahoma. Then to the Guymon District as presiding elder; in 1916 
to First Church, Ardmore. The last appointment that Brother Welch held in 
the West Oklahoma Conference was that of field agent for the proposed Uni- 
versity Place Church at Norman, Oklahoma. While serving in this field our 
country entered the World War, and Brother Welch volunteered for service and 
was stationed at Camp Greene, Charlotte, N. C. After the armistice was signed, 
he transferred to the Western North Carolina Conference, and in 1918 was sta- 
tioned at Wadesboro. It may be noted that our present Bishop Mouzon was then 
in charge of the West Oklahoma Conference and granted the transfer that was 
received by Bishop Darlington, who was that year in charge of the Western 



148 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

North Carolina Conference. After three years at Wadesboro he was sent to 
Lenoir, serving that charge for one year. The charge granted him a vacation 
trip to Palestine, voting him his expenses for the trip. His next charge was 
Chestnut Street, Asheville, which he served for two years, when he was assigned 
to Brevard, where he remained for three years. At the conference at Gastonia 
in 1926, he was appointed to his last field of active labor, the Oakley Charge 
in the Asheville District. In May, 1927, he suffered a breakdown in health and 
was relieved of the charge by Bishop Mouzon, and at the conference that fall 
was granted the superannuate relation, which he has since held. 

The following are, in order, the charges he served: Richlands Circuit, 1899- 
1900; LaGrange, 1901; Roanoke Rapids, 1902-03; Hope Mills, 1904; Roanoke 
Island, 1905; Siler City, 1906-07; Buckhorn Circuit, 1908; Trinity, Wilming- 
ton, N. C, 1909; transferred to the West Oklahoma Conference, 1910; Lindsey, 
Okla., 1910; Guymon District, 1911; Altus, 1912-13; Wynnewood, 1914; 
Ardmore, First Church, 1915; Norman, First Church, 1916; field agent for 
Oklahoma Conferences for the University Church to be. built in Norman, No- 
vember, 1917-May, 1918; May, 1918, entered service as Y. M. C. A. worker, 
U. S. Army, and stationed at Camp Greene, Charlotte, N. C. ; at conference held 
in Charlotte, November, 1918, at close of the war, was transferred to the 
Western North Carolina Conference and stationed at Wadesboro; Wadesboro, 
1918-19; Lenoir, 1920; Chestnut Street, Asheville, 1921-22; Brevard, 1923-26; 
Oakley, Biltmore, 1926. 

The influences that surrounded Brother Welch in his early years were a great 
factor in determining for him the direction of his life work. Both his father 
and mother were devout people. However, the mother stamped upon the suscep- 
tible nature of the growing boy more indelibly the religious principles that 
were to guide him in his after years. It was to her that his thought turned when 
he was appointed pastor at Lenoir, where he became the pastor of the girls at 
Davenport College. For it was to this school that his mother had come as a girl 
for training, from her then distant home in South Carolina. 

For thirty years he served the church in these three Conferences in twenty-one 
different fields of labor. His was an experience that carried him into almost every 
section of North Carolina, from the Atlantic on the east to the heart of the 
hills in Western North Carolina, and his work in Oklahoma as field agent for 
the University Church carried him all over the two conferences in Oklahoma. 

For thirty years he gave himself in service to the people. For thirty years he 
carried on, sometimes in the joy that comes from an appreciative people whom 
he tried to serve, sometimes with a lack of response that tended to sear and 
deaden the enthusiasm that was natural to him. But in the face of difficulties 
that would have caused the average man to surrender, he carried on to the end. 
On his last charge at Oakley he gathered the young people about him and urged 
them on to reorganization, and gave to the Epworth League a renewed lease on 
life and usefulness. 

His last illness came suddenly. He had undergone an attack of influenza a 
few weeks before, but had apparently recovered and was at work as usual. 
But about ten days before the end came he developed a cold which passed quickly 
into pneumonia, and with it the release. He passed away quietly into that rest 
that remaineth to the people of God, in the early morning hours of February 
21, 1929. His body was laid away on the slope of a hill in Riverside Cemetery 
at Asheville. JOHN F. KIRK. 



Western North Carolina Conference 149 

william fletcher womble 

When William Fletcher Womble passed to his reward the church lost a 
loyal member and a faithful minister of the gospel, and his family a devoted 
husband and father and brother. 

Brother Womble, son of the late J. J. and Lois Atwater Womble, was born 
in Chatham County, N. C, February 21, 1859, and received his translation 
from Winston-Salem, January 7, 1929, being in the seventieth year of his age. 
His father died in Virginia in service during the war between the states, leaving 
his wife and four little children to continue the struggle for the necessities of 
life without his aid. Fletcher was the third child of the family, and was about 
five years of age when his father died. With rare courage, the widow devoted 
herself to the task of rearing the children in the fear of God. Only a few years 
ago she passed away at about the age of ninety years. To the last of her life, 
Brother Womble visited his mother regularly and showed every mark of abiding 
affection for her who had done so much for him under difficulties which he knew 
so well. 

In 1881 Brother Womble was happily married to Miss Olivia Snipes, also 
of Chatham County, and thus were laid the foundations of a home as beautiful 
and true and wholesome as mutual love and the grace of God can produce. 
Mrs. Womble gave herself unstintedly, intelligently, and with a deep and beau- 
tiful consecration to the joint task of making a home and of fulfilling the 
demands which devolved upon her as the wife of a minister. To this union were 
born three children, a daughter who died in infancy, a son who passed away 
at the early age of eight years, and another son, Hon. Bunyan S. Womble of 
Winston-Salem, who, with his mother, survives. 

In young manhood the subject of this sketch entered the mercantile business 
in Siler City and was quite successful in it. However, having felt all the while 
the obligation to enter the ministry, but having put the impression aside tempo- 
rarily on account of the exacting demands of such a calling, he came to a 
decision at about the age of thirty years, to enter the ministry. Accordingly he 
relinquished all active participation in business and, after several years educa- 
tional preparation for the work, he joined the Western North Carolina Con- 
ference at Asheville in 1891 and served the following charges: Wentworth, 
1892-95; Lincolnton, 1896-98; Shelby, 1899-1902; Newton, 1903-06; Morgan- 
ton, 190 7-10; Reidsville, 1911-13; Hendersonville, 19 14-1 7 ; Lincolnton, 1918; 
Presiding Elder, Mt. Airy District, 1919-21; Presiding Elder, Greensboro Dis- 
trict, 1922-25; Newton, 1926-27. 

At the Conference held again in Asheville in 192 7 he asked for and received 
the superannuate relation, feeling that the cares and burdens of the pastorate 
were becoming increasingly difficult under his advancing years. He came, with 
Mrs. Womble, to Winston-Salem where they built a home and lived for a few 
months until his release came suddenly. 

Such are some of the brief facts of his life and ministry among us. It would 
be out of the question for us to frame a memoir containing, in proper adjust- 
ment, all the elements which entered into his character. It would not be proper 
for us to attempt it, even if we had all the facts, since his manner of living 
in our midst was such as to preclude all suggestion of ostentation. A few addi- 
tional words, however, should be said in justice to his cherished memory. 

There are various standards by which a human life may be measured, but 
only one of these can stand the acid test of the great Adventure which we call 
death. In the business world, one is measured by what he is worth; in the pro- 
fessions, by his clientele ; in academic circles, by what he knows; in society, by 
that subtle quality which we call gentility. The athlete examines his muscle; 
the scientist, his brain; the employer, his earning capacity; the state, his patriot- 
ism; the school, his ideals. 



150 Minutes of the Fortieth Session 

But when the shadows of the day lengthen and the sun goes down; when the 
holy hush of twilight has softened all the discordant notes of the fretful hours 
of Stress and struggle, we are apt to place a new emphasis upon certain qualities 
which seemed less conspicuous before, but which now are seen to undergird the 
whole life structure, imparting to it a strength and a nobility which is bound 
to endure. 

If I were asked to say the biggest thing about him that I can think of, 
having known him intimately, it would be this: "He was a good man." And 
that is the greatest thing that can be said of any person. Brilliancy may scintillate 
for a little while; genius may dazzle and charm us; fame may place the laurel 
today which fades tomorrow; but goodness is the enduring virtue that never 
grows less nor disappoints anybody who comes in touch with it. Brother Womble 
was an honest man, and an honest man is the noblest work of God. He was a man 
of gentle spirit, possessing a high sense of personal integrity, and one who was 
governed by conscientious principles in his dealings with his fellow men. He 
was a genuinely religious man, giving the best of all that he had to Him who 
gave His all that he might live. Moreover, he was a quiet man, never thrust- 
ing himself forward in any joint enterprise with his brethren, but all the more 
valuable for that reason when called upon to render real service. 

His was a well poised life. As a minister, he was alert, efficient, painstaking, 
sympathetic, and conscientious. He possessed the pastoral heart in a peculiar way. 
It is said of our Lord that he went out and saw the multitude and that he "was 
moved with compassion toward them." In this essential particular, our brother 
shared the emotions and feelings of his Lord in the presence of those who were 
committed to his charge as the shepherd of the flock. He gave of his time and 
energy and service unstintedly and ungrudgingly. Even after his retirement from 
the active ministry, he eagerly responded to every invitation or opportunity to 
preach and assist the brethren with their work. 

As a presiding elder, he manifested always a kind and brotherly spirit. He 
failed in no particular to counsel and advise with and help the pastors committed 
to his charge. If he ever spoke evil of any man, the records are silent at that 
point. He did not criticise his brethren in the ministry. A high tribute was paid 
him by a member of his family who said that no single instance could be re- 
called of his ever having spoken harshly or with a show of anger toward any 
living man. 

As a man, he was capable of drawing men very close to him. He had the 
subtle power of making men love him. I suppose no man has worked among 
us for a generation whom the people loved more genuinely than they did this 
fine Christian gentleman. He was an optimist. Very sensitive to the frailties of 
people, yet he judged them in all charity, and refused ever to be completely 
discouraged. 

Furthermore, he was always studying to do good to somebody else. It was 
a life-long custom of his, never paraded before the public, to assist, out of the 
meager salary that a minister customarily receives, some worthy boys and girls 
in the matter of getting an education and securing other needed life equipment. 
Deprived of the best educational advantages in his early life he, nevertheless, 
recognized its value and furnished others the opportunities which were denied him. 

His devotion to his family was perfect. 

His going was unexpected, but he was ready — more ready than we to part 
with him. 

The funeral service, participated in by Rev. C. C. Weaver, Rev. C. A. Wood 
and the writer, was conducted in West End Methodist Church, Winston-Salem, 
N. C, on January 8, 1929, after which his body was laid to rest in the city 
cemetery to await the resurrection of the just.
